Apple prepares new partnership for the manufacture of Macs, according to rumors

NPD Group says Mac sales grew 25% in the last quarter

According to the NPD Group, Mac sales in the first quarter of 2010 grew by 25% compared to 2009, suggesting very encouraging numbers on the way to Apple's next fiscal conference, scheduled for tomorrow. Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray, responded positively to the figures released by the analysis company with the possibility that up to 2.9 million Macs were sold in the period.

However, many analysts believe that this number may vary slightly, being lower than expected by Munster (2.7 to 2.8 million) or even higher, exceeding 3 million. Unfortunately, Apple will not be able to take advantage of the launch of new MacBooks Pro as an incentive for this quarter, but the next one should be very encouraging thanks to them.

In addition to the Mac, the NPD claims that another line of products that could bring exciting news to Apple investors is that of iPods, which has grown again slowly (3%) in the United States, it is estimated that up to 10 million players have been sold. sold in North American territory. IPhone sales are at a slightly more modest pace than before and must have been below 7 million.
