So I am reading this story about Apple Computer’s share of the education market and the numbers really surprised me:
“Apple’s education market share in western Europe is now 15.2 per cent…Dell now holds 14.7 per cent of the education market in western Europe. In third place is HP with 14.2 per cent followed by Acer with 9.5 per cent, and Fujitsu with 7.8 per cent. The remaining “other” PC vendors hold 38.6 per cent”
None of the companies listed as having over 60% of the European education market are actually European companies. What gives? Are there any major Europe-based hardware manufactures? When your average European sits down to surf do they do so in front of box made by an American or Asian company?
I never really thought about this before. It would say a lot about the current business climate in Europe if there is no European equivalent of Dell. Perhaps some of the Chicago boyz across the pond can clue me in.
