Amazon released their numbers for the holiday season and Apple did quite well.
According to MacRumors, six of Apple’s iPod models placed in the top ten in the MP3 Player category while three MacBook models placed in the top ten in the Laptops category. Apple also placed three iMac models and one Mac Mini model in the desktop category. Granted Amazon update’s their top items hourly, but having watched these categories over the past month to make sure our predictions came true, the placement and items have not changed much. Also, Amazon does not really sell all manufacturers such as Dell , the leading PC maker, but top spot at Amazon proves the resurgence of Apple continues.
Apple made the top spot in each of the categories with the 30GB iPod (Black), MacBook and an iMac.
In addition to winning the Amazon battle, online shoppers overwhelmed the Apple iTunes store on Christmas and the day after with four times the number of visits to the store this Christmas over last Christmas.
By the way, Amazon had 4 million orders on December 11th eclipsing the previous record of 3.6 million on December 12th, 2006. This helps prove that Cyber Monday is nothing but a farce!
