After issuing a
report earlier this week
stating that Apple’s unit notebook shipments had dropped seven percent, DisplaySearch on Wednesday said that number was incorrect due to a miscalculation.
John Jacobs, Director of Notebook PC Market Research for DisplaySearch, told Macworld that the actual unit volume for Apple’s notebooks dropped two percent from the third quarter of 2006 to the fourth quarter of 2006, representing 17,000 notebooks in all.
Notebook market share only dropped 7/10 of one percent for that same period.
Macworld incorrectly stated that Apple had lost seven percent market share in yesterday’s story instead of unit volume.
