Macs Destory Dells and HPs of this world as most sought-After PCs this holiday season

When it comes to computers, I like to choose the best computer that I never get pissed off from it. Almost all of the computers like Dell, HP, Sony and etc... will become laggy and freeze after one year from use, that's why I hate to buy a normal computer. Yes guys, I am an Apple boy and I only use MacBook computers.. What about you ?

Market research firm Parks Associates reported that Mac desktops for the first time have usurped Dell and other competitors such as Hewlett-Packard and Acer as the most sought-after desktop PCs this holiday shopping season.

Back in 2012, Apple was ranked second so this jump in popularity clearly indicates that a lot of people are now digging Apple’s latest desktop Mac hardware. Back in 2011, Apple was ranked third in the category.

Not only is the sweet victory a nice testament to Apple’s design and engineering prowess, it’s humiliating to Dell, the computer maker whose CEO fifteen years ago infamously advised leadership of the then-nearly bankrupt Apple to sell off the company and return the money to shareholders…

Data was gathered from Parks Associates’ nationwide survey of 2,500 U.S. broadband households in the fourth quarter of 2013. John Barrett, director of Consumer Analytics with Parks Associates, commented:
Apple topped the list of intended brands for desktop purchases for the first time this year. In 2011 and 2012, Dell was the top desktop brand, but Apple has displaced it, making Apple now the most popular brand across even more key CE categories.
Here's the following chart:
The iPad proved the most popular brand among tablet shoppers in Parks Associates’ research, followed by the Amazon Kindle, Samsung tablets, Microsoft’s Surface and Acer. As for streaming media devices, the Apple TV has remained the top brand, followed by the Roku, Buffalo, D-Link’s Boxee Box and Netgear hardware.

Barrett explained that being the preferred brand is no guarantee that consumers won’t change their minds.
For example, with streaming media players, Apple is the preferred brand, but many shoppers ultimately end up getting a Roku. Last year, among younger (18-34) shoppers for this device, 34 percent planned to buy an Apple, and 15 percent planned to buy a Roku. In a later survey of actual purchases, we found 24 percent bought an Apple TV and 29 percent bought a Roku player.
