Apple today announced financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter (third calendar quarter) of 2017, unveiling impressive Mac sales.

Apple sold 5.39 million Macs during the quarter, up from 4.89 million in the year-ago quarter, marking an 10 percent increase in shipments.

Mac revenue came in at $7.17 billion, up from $5.74 billion in the year-ago quarter, marking 25 percent growth. Overall revenue is likely up thanks to an increased price tag for the MacBook Pro, which saw prices raised in 2016 with the debut of Touch Bar models.

Apple this summer refreshed much of its Mac lineup, introducing new MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac models with Kaby Lake processors. At the end of this year, Apple plans to introduce the iMac Pro for its professional user base, and there are future plans to unveil a modular high-end Mac Pro, both of which should further boost Mac sales in the years to come.

I wish they would put more into the computer market. I would actually prefer larger laptops - the always smaller and lighter mantra is fine for the MacBook Airs but for the MacBook Pro I want solid performance and more weight is not bad. I like the weight and feel of my old 2010 MacBook Pro. What I would like is more battery, more ports, more memory, more processors, more system storage (SSD), a big bright screen and real function keys. The keyboard on the 2010 MBP is also better than the newer units - a matter of feel although the dust collection under keys is a problem Apple needs to work on which could also make it waterproof if done right.

I hope we see some form of 32 GB config in 2018.

But Apple dropped in the overall market . We saw the story a few weeks ago.
That story was based on the assumption that Apple shipped 4.6 million Macs, when they actually shipped 5.4 million. So they're actually up 10.2%, when Gartner thought they were down 5.6%. Assuming Gartner's other numbers are close to correct, this also means Apple jumped up to fourth rank.

With the laptop market as a whole down, that's impressive.

I’m guessing the touch bar is less of an issue outside the Apple blogosphere

maybe this os partly why Tim Cook assured us they still plan to do something with the mini.
A nifty little mac (with modern components) might actually sell a bit
