Amazon.com's best selling laptops, desktops, and MP3 players were all made by Apple Computer.

According to the online retailer's rankings for popular items by category, 6 iPod models were in the top 10 in the MP3 Player category (http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/electronics/172630/ref=pd_ts_e_nav/102-2193719-8620109) and 3 MacBook models placed in the top 10 in the Laptops category (http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/pc/565108/ref=pd_ts_pc_nav/102-2193719-8620109). However, perhaps most impressive was Apple's domination of the Desktop category (http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/pc/565098/ref=pd_ts_pc_nav/102-2193719-8620109), with Apple placing 3 iMac models and 1 Mac Mini model with no other PC manufacturer placing in the top 10. In addition, Apple earned the top spot in all the above categories with its 30 GB iPod (Black), MacBook, and iMac.

Amazon.com had its best year ever (http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/biztech/12/27/amazon.sales.ap/index.html) this year, recording a peak of over 4 million sales in one day (December 11th).

offer free shipping and no tax. No one can beat that!

Apple always tops the list because they typically have 3 or 4 iMacs that remain unchanged for 9 months. Compare this to the a1610n from HP at number 12. You can also buy the a1600n, a1620n, a1630n and a1640n. And in 2 weeks, the a1600 series will be replaced, if it hasn't been already.

We know the lists are updated hourly, but does anyone know what the date range is for these rankings?

In other words, is this the best selling in the last hour? the last day? the last week?

In any case, the rankings are probably not based on total cumulative sales, rather a more appropriate and relevant range, reducing the impact 'frequent' product changes.

While true, this doesn't change the fact that staying on stop of Amazon's best-selling list is like free advertising for Apple, and it will help sell more Macs in its own right.

Amazon top sales lists are an easy comparison because they are easily accessible. It's very difficult or impossible to obtain sales numbers for most retailers and trying to reconcile the figures from various outlets would take a lot of work.

It's not very scientific but at least amazon gives a nice (albeit limited) view of what is selling.

If you want to buy a PC, you can choose from dozens of companies and different model numbers. If you want to purchase a computer with OSX, you have about 10 options from Amazon.com.

But yeah, it's not like making the best selling list is a bad thing.

Yep in general unless you know EXACTLY what you want (I bought my Macbook RAM from PC World), this is always true ;).

It is impressive that the top the bestseller list on Amazon, but if I was buying a PC online I'd probably go to Dell or another manufacturers website, but Amazon seem to offer a good discount on Macs.

It's only in the US I'm afraid. Dell and HP are the top two, last quarter they shipped about 20'000 fewer PC's than Gateway (number 3), they are almost certainly the 3rd biggest in the US currently, as their shipments are growing and Gateway's aren't.

Interesting you bring up this point, because Apple used to be like this.

One of the first things Teh Steve did when he came back was declare it was unnecessarily confusing to consumers, and cut to the now (in) famous 4 products lines -- (consumer|pro) && (laptop || desktop)

The desktop category didn't JUST have desktops unfortunately, as it would have made the best comparison. It also included software. However, the fact still remained that Apple sold the most computers and SOFTWARE beat out the other PC manufacturers to round out the top 10.

Life-span and numbers taken into consideration, the best news is that they actually made the TOP of the list. not middle or bottom.

Errr... You could buy a few when it splits, or buy one now. What's the difference? And if that's all you an buy, the price of the trade commission is going put you in a loss range for 10 years.

If one wanted to buy 50 shares but did not have $4K, then they could them after they split and went down to $35 a share for only $1750. When shares are priced lower they will increase much more rapidly, rather when they go up like google.

As for commission it should not cost more than about $20 per trade. Buy it and keep it for 5 years then sell them and you will be amazed how much many more aapl shares one has.:D

Don't wait for the shares to split, buy half the amount of shares you may have bought after the split, right now. You will save money buying before Macworld, and you will double the amount of shares you buy after the split happens.

If it was really that easy, ie. split stocks so they increase in value faster, don't you think every company in the world would be doing this every day?

Also what is the difference in buying 50 shares at $40 = $2000, assuming a 2 for 1 split, or 25 shares at $80 = $2000? If they double in value in 10 years you will make the same amount of profit.

Nah, even if you know exactly what you want, PC World isn't always the best option. If you want the Mac for example, John Lewis every time, (unless you get Edu or want a BTO). 2 year guarantee on all computers and usually at least 1 or 2 people in all the time that have a reasonable working knowledge on Macs in all stores, (don't be put off if you don't get one of these first time, persist in asking questions they struggle to answer and they will eventually give up and get somebody else). Nottingham even better, I work there so I know our branch is littered with Mac owners and we usually have all in stock to take away.

Had a guy who rang just before Christmas who had been to PC World and asked them a couple of questions they just shrugged their shoulders at. Will Mac run Office? Yes and we sell it - followed by price list. Will my external hard drive for Windows work with a Mac? Yes, if it's FAT32 it will read and write, if it's NTFS it will read only. Any more questions?

Next day, first thing, he came in and picked up a 20" and a copy of Office for Mac from a colleague, (opened earlier than I started that day, just caught a glimpse of the details he was taking from him as I started work and thought "That's one message I rang back yesterday.")

My main worry if Apple becomes #1 Computer manufacturer is that quality will drop, to keep prices down to stay cost competitive. Already my MBP has more plastic then my old powerbook in the case. With the popularity of the current products major case redesigns are far fewer, and more and more parts are being made by third party manufactures. While any one of these things is not necessarily bad on its own it could create a sliding scale where quality will drop further. In the Mid 90s Gateway become the leader of the PCs because they were known for quality then by the late 90s their quality drop. Late 90's Early 2000's Dell was know for its quality and it become number one now Dell quality is questionable now it seems that Apple is taking Dells Place. So by 2012 who will be the next new king. HP, Acer? Well at least with Apple Gaining Market share it makes Software developers pay more attention to Cross Platform Development or Web Technologies.

The list is UPDATED hourly.

That doesn't mean the results are from the last hour, it just means they've added the last hour's sales info into the list.

For all we know, the list goes back 6 months at a time; they don't make the period of time specific.

Company A and Company B are direct competitors.
Company A has four products available at any given time that change every year.
Company B has twelve products available at any given time that change every three months.
Assume company B sells twice the number of total products as company A.
Assume the total products sold are distributed evenly among all the products available.
We are looking for the most number of sells for one unique product at given time intervals.

1 Mo ---- Company A = X ---- Company B = 2/3 X

6 Mo ---- Company A = 6X ---- Company B = 2 X

12 Mo ---- Company A = 12X ---- Company B = 2 X

Obviously this is a very simple example with some simple assumptions but you should get the idea. Even with a short sample period and half the total sells, the company with 1/3 fewer unique products sells more of each individual item than does the company with more items.

I think the arguments about Apple product lifetime-cycle and number of models have less importance than many are attributing. The new models have not been out for that long and if you look at the top 12 desktops - apple has 7 of the 12 (see http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/electronics/565098/ref=pd_ts_e_nav/002-6222124-8389602)

That means that a wide span of apple models are selling wonderfully. I think a better explanation of what is going on here is that more people are finding out that buying macs from amazon is an excellent way to go.

You are not rude. And I do follow my own advise. I started off with 100 shares about 5 years ago in aapl and just kept buying. I now own over 1600 shares with a large part on margin. In one year I will have 3200. Apple split its stock to make it more affordable for the average joe while also increasing trading volume. I can not tell you how many people I run into who say, it is too expensive right now. Psychologically people want to buy many shares at lower prices, even though I agree with you about the value numbers.

At the rate that Apple is going this stock will split every 2 to 3 years if not sooner. When it does it usually comes down quite a bit initially. It went up to 90 before it split and then it came down to 35 post split.

First quarter numbers will blow everyone away.

Well, in all fairness, Apple doesn't have as many models to sell as HP, Dell and the like have. So while HP and others see their sales spread out over several models, Apple has relatively few models to sell, so the models they do sell will sell in large numbers when compared to sales of some individual Dell or HP-model. If you looked at overall sales, Apple would still be trailing behind HP and others, even though some of their individual models are selling very, very well.

They certainly sell a lot more computers than many individual PC manufacturers. They obviously don't sell more than the combined number of PCs sold however.

I wonder if their success on Amazon is the result of the "Vista Halo" or should we call it the "Vista Cloud", or is it as another post has suggested Apple's branding and the way they don't change the names of their computers to reflect small increases in processor speed and memory, etc., which works well on the Internet. Having said this though it looks like Amazon do return the ranking to zero when there are any changes to Mac models because the listings are processor, memory, etc. specific. Maybe we just have to confess that these machines are selling like hot cakes, as they deserve to be - Apple is having its 15 minutes after waiting 30 years for it to happen.

Very confusing time for Apple and they loyal customers, let alone prospective new customers -- especially when the clones were added to the pot. Talk about confusing.

Now it is so much easier and better for the customer and Apple with the Pro and Consumer lines. :)

can someone tell me how i'm reading this wrong? In a list of top 10 desktop computers, apple has 3 iMacs and 1 MacMini--and no other PC manufacturer has a model in that top ten? What, exactly, fills the other six top desktop slots?

It is confusing, but if you look at Amazon's Desktop category you see listed, All-in-ones, bundles, media centers, LCD Monitors, CRT monitors and PC mermory. However, when you explore the category, you will find external drives, power supply regulators, power adapters and servers as well.

There is a little shuffle going on, as of this moment, the mac mini, and the 24" iMac are out of the top 10 ( but only just), and a Mac Pro model is in the list on no 9. Also of note is that HP has managed to grab a spot in this top ten with one mini tower model.

GO APPLE!

That's totally amazing! We're headed in the right direction.
