hurts Macs.

From the link:

Recession-weary consumers and Apple played another game of chicken last month, and once again consumers didn’t budge and Apple swerved off the road. Mac sales fell 16 percent year over year in February, according to research firm The NPD Group.

The Mac sales drops in February were a 10 percent decrease from the month before. Sales of Windows PCs, however, increased 22 percent in February year over year, helped along by surging sales of lightweight, inexpensive netbooks, according to NPD.

  1. It’s true that the recession hurts Mac sales, but I think your second factor is much larger — more and more consumers want netbooks, which Mac does not offer. It is amazing how many of these people are buying. Will be interesting to see if Apple ever decides to enter this market. So far they are saying they won’t but I think they will eventually crack.
