'I'm a PC' Marketing Pays Off for Microsoft, OEMs

News Analysis. Microsoft and its partners are reaping big rewards from the $300 million Windows marketing campaign.
[Editor's Note: Please read the companion post at Apple Watch. Together, the two posts offer full analysis of February Windows PC and Mac sales data and six charts (three per post).]
That's my conclusion after reviewing February U.S. retail PC sales data released by NPD on March 16. Apple's steep U.S. retail sales declines continued in February, comparatively worse than January's already dismal showing. Meanwhile, Windows PC sales continued their recent year-over-year growth rally.

Yeah well to be fair we have to assume PC is growing fast because you can get cheap laptop,desktops and netbooks all with windows on them for $300,$400,$500ish.

People are just cutting back on expensive stuff, but I am kind of happy Apple is not selling. I really get tired of how everyone gets so obsessed with them.

"it just works" That comes up so often it makes me sick. I can't even remember the last time windows gave huge trouble or even a full system lock up. Just is funny because most Mac users have 0% idea how to do anything other than open up Safari and Aim and they call OSX so much better... Last time I checked windows can do those things great as well. And with 7 I have been able to cut down the spyware and malware by tons and have not got a virus yet. But I consider myself a smart user who does not click on everything and download everything that comes up lol.

But it is very nice to see Windows pc's selling well. Go Microsoft.

Go Microsoft!
Good campaign, it's not much of a surprise, if it all, that it is benefiting MS.
