I just feel like saying – "WORD!"
You think that's air you're breathing now?
*It's Mac OS*
Mac Pro 2,8GHz Quad, GTX 285, 10GB RAM, 2,25 TB HDD, Dell 2408WFP

Hmmmm.... maybe I'm missing something. The article says that 29% of respondents now plan to buy a Mac. And this is an amazing increase in just two years... from 27%? (16% notebook + 11% desktop.)
That's only 1% a year the way I read it.
And later they refer to 24% as "most."
I don't doubt that there's a big trend toward more Mac users, and I agree that if other companies start to copy Apple successfully that will be nice--but I wasn't easily able to dig the facts out of that article.

Yeah I too am confused. I saw an article a few days ago here:
Among talking about the mac market share was a reference to the same poll. "The latest ChangeWave consumer poll found that 29% of likely notebook and desktop PC buyers in the next 90 days are planning to get a Mac. That's higher than consumer purchase intent for HP laptops (21%), HP desktops (24%) and Dell laptops (28%). But Dell had higher demand for its desktops (31%).
The trend line is clearly up for Apple. Two years ago, 16% of likely notebook PC buyers and 11% of desktop PC buyers planned to buy Macs."
nagromme, as you said... a 1% increase?

According to the original article, 29% of laptop consumers will buy a Mac laptop, and 29% of desktop consumers will buy a Mac desktop. That is a massive improvement, if true.
I'll believe it when I see it though. Their previous forecasts in the same chart don't seem to have come true either.
Mac <- Macintosh <- McIntosh apples <- John McIntosh <- McIntosh surname <- "Mac an toshach" <- "Son of the Chief"
