Apple’s customers are like no others — a rich blend of the most sociologically elite with those seeking elegant, simple computing. Apple’s panache has enabled them to maintain some of the highest margins in the industry, while also sustaining a brand loyalty level which is the envy of many. Now Apple is making surprising and measurable progress against Windows’ dominance with a multi-pronged strategy involving broadened retail, mobile computing, and non-computer products and services.
In addition to singular demographics, Apple’s users have a unique profile in the ways they use their personal computers. Unlike users of Intel/Windows computers, a significant portion of Apple’s users are active, exploratory, avantgarde and early adopters. The activities they enjoy are unique in the way that they more-often incorporate rich media such as video and music as well as more-active prosumer behavior than many more-passive Windows users.
However, just as Apple continues to innovate and pioneer new technologies and ways to creatively enjoy personal computing, there are many other companies that closely trail Apple, and continue to threaten the company’s success. This report dives into solid survey results to examine the entire range of Apple users, from those in homes to those in the workplace, from those with an Apple as their second or third home computer, to those that have simply kept an old Apple around and even those that have cut back using their old Windows computer to switch to Apple.

— Do Apple buyers shop at Apple’s stores, even buy at retail, or are they shopping online more and more? Who else shops at Apple’s retail and online outlets?
— Is the home Apple the main computer, or is it the second or third computer, relegated to the back room? Do Apple owners only own Apples, or do they also own Windows PCs?
— Do home owners keep their Apples longer than Windows PC users? Do they use their Apples as often as Windows PC users?
— Who else has Apple drawn in with iPods and where does this benefit Apple? Does Apple have a higher or lower market share among users of portable MP3 players?
