Written by Nick Farrell

Never mind Samsung

Apple has been having quite good sales in the US thanks to the trickledown effect from its iPads and iPhones. However it is starting to look like the fruity cargo cult is having its market cut to pieces by the ThinkPad maker Lenovo.

According to a recent press release by Lenovo, the company has overtaken Apple in terms of PC sales over in the US market for the first time. Lenovo said it has surpassed Apple and have taken third place in the US market, behind the likes of PC giants such as HP and Dell. The numbers are based on data that has been gathered for the past three months along with additional numbers provided by the IDC.

“For the first time, Lenovo’s EMEA revenue surpassed its China PC revenue in the quarter, while in the US, Lenovo surpassed Apple to take the number three position in PC shipments in the fourth quarter,” he release enthused.

Lenovo also revealed that if they were to combine both the PCs and tablets into a single category, they would have sold 64 million devices which is up 18 per cent year over year. According to Lenovo’s CEO and Chairman, Yuanqing Yang, “The record sales and profits that we delivered last year prove that Lenovo can grow and deliver its commitments, no matter the market conditions.”
