Despite 2009 being a year of controversy in different quarters, Apple will be sad to leave it behind after the Mac ensured it had “a really good year”, according to an industry expert.
Philip Michaels told Macworld.com that last year the Mac enjoyed plenty of time in the spotlight, despite all the attention that its smaller sisters – the iPod Touch and iPhone – also received.
“The past 12 months has seen Apple revamp its hardware offerings, as well as the operating system that runs on them, with many of those changes helping fuel strong sales and profits at a time when other tech companies are scrounging for loose change among the couch cushions,” he added.
Mr Philips also said that Apple is showing every indication of continuing that momentum into the new decade.
Apple’s new Macbook Pro family includes 13, 15 and 17in models, encompassing a new unibody design along with a longer lasting battery and a sharper display.
