As for the PC business, some analysts say it's time to stop measuring Apple and Gateway by their slice of the overall PC market, anyway. Gateway and Apple, as well as laptop specialist Toshiba, address only part of the market, said NPD Group analyst Stephen Baker.

Gateway, for example, is much less aggressive at selling to large businesses, while Apple has concentrated at the high-end of the consumer market.

"Nobody expects that you can sell Acura TSX sports cars as Taurus wagons," Baker said.
At last...a voice of reason in this market share madness. His last line is great. As long as Apple is making money and surviving, then it is doing well and will continue to exist.
