Apple’s Mac business has turned the corner. While Mac sales are still not growing nearly as fast as they did over much of the last few years — and the iPhone has replaced the Mac as Apple’s growth story — Apple’s most recent quarter was a significant improvement over the three before it.
Apple reported yesterday that it sold a record 3.05 million Macs during its September quarter, up 17% year-over-year. That’s the best growth it’s posted since last year’s September quarter, when it reported 21% year-over-year growth. Since then, it posted two quarters of single-digit year-over-year growth, and its first year-over-year decline since 2003.
