Unfortunately the data is more than a little flawed as its far too US centric.

wasn't this survey taken in the US, where mac market share is about 7-8% anyway?

and also, the number should be 7.96% (incl. iPhone), because windows share was calculated including windows mobile

Well, they should include Apple TV, iPod Touch, and when the other iPods have OS X they can include those. Then come out with a Mac ATM machine and Mac Point-of-Sale system.

That's what is sounds like. It's skewed information as people have said already, and there isn't a reason to include anything other than full sized computers IMHO.

So, no Mac mini then? ;)

No, that's full sized... just using MacBook parts.

Just no iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple TV which aren't classified as computers. If we include them we might as well include the iPod HiFi, iPod Classic/shuffle/nano, older macs, the Newton, and anyone that is using Mac peripherals.
