In a conference call regarding fiscal 2012’s first quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2011, Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer said the Mac set new records for both desktop and laptops.
Apple sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26% unit increase over the year-ago quarter. That’s 26% annual growth compared to flat growth for the computer industry overall.
Mac sales outgrew the industry average in all of Apple’s markets, Oppenheimer said. In the Asia/Pacifia region, sales were up 53% year-over-year.
The chief financial officer said that MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and iMacs were Apple’s biggest sellers. He also said that customers have downloaded over 100 million apps from the Mac App Store in less than a year.
