One million Windows users switch to Mac

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:27 pm

As many as one million Windows users may have switched to Macs this year as the iPod halo transforms Apple into a technology industry “darling” and users tire of Windows security problems.

According to Needham analyst Charles Wolf the shift follows Apple’s fast-paced series of innovations. “The momentum generated by these products has translated into financial results that have easily beat most estimates. Most importantly, Windows users are buying Macs in increasing numbers.

“We estimate that in the first three quarters of calendar 2005, over one million of them have purchased a Mac compared to our estimate of 500,000 for the entire calendar year. Clearly, the so-called halo is working. Windows users are also switching because of the growing epidemic of viruses infecting their PCs,” he writes.
