If we combine both the iPad and Mac systems, they ship 27 million units - or 20.1% of the 134 million computers that were shipped during Q4 2012. This is the first time that Apple has reached over 20%. HP have taken over second place ahead of Lenovo, where HP shipped 15 million PCs to take 11% of the market. Samsung walked up into fifth place with 11.7 million PCs shipped, and a nice 9% share.
