Apple has vaulted into the third spot in PC market share in the U.S. after HP and Dell, according to ICD's quarterly tracking survey, which was released last week.
HP has 24 percent of the market, Dell 23 percent and Apple 10.6 percent, with Acer pulling 10.3 percent. The survey includes netbooks but does not include tablets such as Apple's iPad. Apple shipments grew 24 percent over the same period last year.
The overall PC market grew 3.8 percent from the same time last year.
