Apple reported lowest sales of its Mac computers last quarter, and now it turns out that this was indicative of a more serious problem.

According to marketing company Net Applications the share of the desktop computers of Apple in December reached its lowest point in five years. Statistics show that last month desktop operating system MacOS powered an only 6.1% of all PCs.

For comparison, in April 2016 this share was 9.6%. Net Applications measures the share of operating systems based on browsers open websites of its customers. The share of 6.1% is the lowest for Mac from August 2011, which is more than five years.

The user share is not equal to sales, but Apple’s own data support the picture of a shrinking market for Mac. In the last quarter the company reported 4.9 million sold computer, which is 14% less compared to the same period a year earlier and the fourth in a row quarter of decline.

Do you think, these results are related with the increased price of the new MacBook Pro and somewhat not so impressive hardware?
