Chromebooks now outsell Macs
Google’s low-cost Chromebooks are now outselling the Apple range of Macs in the US for the first time.
IDC analyst Linn Huang has been adding up the numbers and concluded that Chrome OS overtook Mac OS in the US in terms of shipments for the first time in 1Q16.
Apple sold 1.76 million Macs in the latest quarter, with nearly 2 million Chromebooks sold by Dell, HP, and Lenovo combined.
Over the pond, Chromebooks are extremely popular as they are supplied to students in schools.
Google recently announced that Android apps are on the way to the Chrome platform so it looks like the technology is getting as large and stable as Android.
