Siliconvalley.com is reporting that Apple's latest quarterly results show that sales of the Mac are up 39.9 percent year on year to 10bn – a record sales year.

What is more, sales of the Mac are growing at twice that of the overall PC market. However Apple has still only got a 3 percent slice of the market despite this growth.

It would be nice to think Apple can expand that – but then with smart and cheap laptops on the market such as the Asus Eee – price as an issue is still a big inhibitor for Apple. Then again a Mac Mini, which is what I have got at home, in less than £400, has no fan, is compatible with PC peripherals via USB, and looks great.
