We've seen PC sales stumbling, with so many parts of the machine being blamed - Windows 8, manufacturers, smartphones, the GFC, and more. But, it looks like Apple's Mac business has hit a little bit of a snag, too.
AppleInsider have some numbers from research firm NPD, which forecasts a 5% drop in Mac sales for Q2 2013. The same data has Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster, saying that Mac sales dropped around 5% in the US, and 5% across the world compared to the same quarter of 2012. June was a bad month for Apple, where Mac sales dropped by a staggering 12%.
If NPD's data is correct, this is the third consecutive quarter in a row for stumbling Mac sales. In Q1 2013, Apple saw a 1.7% year-over-year decline in sales, and in Q4 2012, Apple saw a 21% reduction in Mac shipments.
