Analysis shows Mac sales typically climb after Microsoft unveils a new OS

Computerworld - Microsoft's introduction of Windows 7 later this month won't cost Apple any Mac sales, a Wall Street analyst said today.
"I analyzed the impact of the last four Windows launches and found no negative correlation between them and Mac sales," said Brian Marshall of Broadpoint AmTech. "In fact, [Microsoft's launches] almost act like a delayed accelerant on Mac sales."
After comparing Mac sales with the launches of Windows 98 in June 1998, Windows 2000 (February 2000), Windows XP (October 2001) and Vista (January 2007), Marshall found that in all but the case of Windows 2000, Mac sales either increased or stayed steady.

Read this on a couple other sites, and on one of the sites posted the following (to lazy to rewrite the post).

Also, the writer failed to point out that Apple doesn't fear Microsoft any more because they are not really in the same boat when it comes to OSs. They lost out long before Win 2000, and Win 98 SE. They lost out back in 1992 when Windows 3.xx, and then Win 95 in 1995. The 7% increase in quarterly revenue is not because of the Mac, albeit the iPod, and iPhone.

My beautiful wife and I recently went to a new furniture store in the area. Mind you, we live in the richest county in America.

The first couch we saw was very striking. The price tag knocked me on my *ss. $29,000.

We left and went to Wendy's for a cheeseburger. We couldn't afford a Big Mac.

I've never really had any Mac experience, however I do own a working almost, what 30 year old apple with the 2 floppy drives original kb& mouse ect. I played with for a little bit. IMO people who purchase Macs do it as a trendy uppity lower your head cause if it rains you'll drowned kind of attitude. It's like a designer computer. And not very upgraded able at least not without spending major jack. sorry probably got a little carried away with this one. Fabe

Hehe

You know it's an expensive furniture store when they refer to their wares as "pieces", as in "yes, that's a lovely piece, and it's only $6400 plus chairs!"

Needless to say, my entire household was purchased on eBay for $70 (as several transactions of smaller magnitude).

Well Apple maybe not lose business but maybe they will not get as much "new" business because 7 is coming out.

Everyone who wants an Apple computer will most likely get an Apple computer. Those people not so sure now can be like o Windows 7 is out and is getting great reviews. I will just take 7.

Make sense lol?


Also those people really big into photoshop etc for a while I don't see why you would buy a Mac? Windows had 64bit photoshop before Apple did and I still don't believe they have it yet. And Windows also has a ton of great video editing software. I truly think that Apple is just running off an old note when it comes to that and just riding it out until it ends.

I never see a reason to buy an Apple computer. Same hardware in a fancy shell and a different OS and they can charge way more for it. Does your harddrive stand to live longer because it is in an Apple computer over the same brand in a PC? I don't think so.
