Apple Mac Ownership in American Households

Most American households that own a Mac also own a Windows PC. A study into this suggests a probability that in most households, Apple is probably the second computer (used by the Apple fanboy of course, while the rest of the family uses the other PC). Here are some stats:

12% of all computer owning households in the US own a Mac (9% in 2008)
85% of that 12% also own a Windows based PC

A majority of Mac owned households have multiple computers
66% of Mac owned households have three or more computers at home
Only 29% of Windows only households are that way

72% of apple computer owners also own a notebook. Only 50% of Windows PC owners fall in that category

  1. “Most American households that own a Mac also own a Windows PC. A study into this suggests a probability that in most households, Apple is probably the second computer. . .”
    It is my belief that we mac owners have a Windows PC as backup because there is still software/hardware not Mac compatible.

  2. I see your point there and you are probably right. But don’t you think even within families, it is only one person or two who uses a Mac while the rest are more comfortable using a PC?
