Apple admits that there are four times as many Windows 10 users when compared to Mac users
“Schiller shares some numbers he says are meaningful to Apple. The Mac user base is nearing 100 million users. As a business, it’s also nearing a $25 billion run rate and is close to being a Fortune 100 company on its own. Apple now ships computers at a ratio of 80 percent notebooks to 20 percent desktop computers, a stat they haven’t updated the public on in some time. MacBook Pro sales have been strong, with 20 percent growth in fiscal Q1 y/y.”
At the same time, Microsoft announced earlier on that its Windows 10 user base was standing in at 400 million users, showing the dominance of the company’s desktop OS. In order to help increase that user base, Apple is going to be reviving a few products later in the year. The iMac lineup, which is the company’s desktop computer family is going to be refreshed later this year, while the desktop workstation named Mac Pro is going to be reintroduced in 2018.
Apple’s MacBook Pro 2016 models are also a good option, but their ‘Thunderbolt 3 only’ interface means that you will have to spend a lot of money on adapters and dongles. These notebooks are also limited to just 16GB of RAM, which will put off a lot of creative professionals and publishers alike.
