Apple is set to have an increase in corporate laptop sales, according to a new survey by ChangeWave. Ten percent of companies plan to buy a Mac laptop in the first quarter of 2010, up from nine percent in August. Seven percent said that they plan to buy a Mac desktop in the first quarter of 2010. This statistic has remained unchanged throughout 2009.
Mac sales did not change at all in the corporate world, despite Apple’s introduction of a new iMac and the Mac mini server.
The survey found a projected increase in corporate IT sales for the first quarter of 2010, with the vast majority of people planning to buy a laptop to start the new year. Almost one fifth of the upgraders are upgrading because of Microsoft’s Windows 7.
Even so, Windows 7 has a high level of customer satisfaction – thirty seven percent said their company is very satisfied with it and fifty-six said their company is somewhat satisfied.
