Apple sells one-in-six laptops in U.S.

NPD, which collects its data primarily from retail sources and excludes most online and all direct sales, said the MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops accounted for 17.6 percent of June's unit sales, up more than three percentage points from May's 14.3 percent. Baker told Computerworld that the jump in market share was likely due to refreshes that both laptop lines recently received.

The market share increase pushed Apple past Gateway into third place on NPD's list of laptop sales leaders, behind Hewlett-Packard and Toshiba. Research firm IDC also has Apple in the third spot; data it released last month put Apple's share of U.S. sales at 5.6 percent, far behind leaders HP (28.4 percent) and Dell (23.6 percent) but tied with Gateway.
