Macs Thrashing Windows PCs in Back to School Sales?

According to a recent study by Global Equities Research, Macs are far outpacing Windows machines in this year’s Back to School sales to university students – with 80% of incoming students buying Macs. 

Apple Back to School sale off to a strong start beating Microsoft 8 to 2,” Global Equities Research writes. “Our research indicates that ~80% of incoming students are buying Apple computers vs. Windows computers. Incrementally more students, who are enrolled in the online university, such as Phoenix Online, are buying Apple computers – this was not necessarily the case last year.

Reports like this one are obviously great news for Apple and should be very worrying for Microsoft. If that 80% figure is anywhere near accurate across the board with college students, that’s a whole lot of hearts and minds being won over. And when those folks leave college and get out there in the corporate world, many of them are going to be pushing to use Macs in the workplace.
