Apple Should Boost PC Market Share With Windows Support (AAPL)

Apr. 6.06 | About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)

With Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) garnering only 3 percent of the U.S. personal computer market in 2005, it's not hard to see why the company's shares surged 10 percent yesterday.

With news of a software program allowing users to run Windows XP on Macs, all of a sudden the company can go after much of that other 97 percent. Apple's design team certainly has a unique opportunity here. I don't see why they couldn't get 10% of the U.S. market within 5 years with the right new products.
