Apple's Mac sales are skyrocketing. That's mainly because Apple recently released a new MacBook Air model and the Mac OS X "Lion" operating system. But it's also because more people than ever believe that Macs deliver high value for their money.
Mac sales are growing at a rapid clip. In fact, the latest reports suggest Mac

Apple, that couldn't be better news.
company's mobile products, namely the iPad and iPhone, are well-known as
revenue leaders for the company. But shareholders like to see several different
products helping to lead sales. With Macs helping out even more, those folks
should be quite pleased to hear the latest news.
