AppleInsider reports that MacBook retail sales were up 94% year-over-year in April, according to UBS figures. These do not include on-line sales.
Compounding the good news is Apple's overall growth of 62% in Mac units for April, compared with April 2006. In this respect, Apple's sales growth vastly outpaced the market, with PC unit growth rising only 14% over the same period, which included a 19% retail sales increase and 30% growth in laptop sales.
Overall, UBS estimate that, according to their checks, Mac unit growth will be 25% for Apple's fiscal Q3, ending June 30, 2007. Revved MacBooks should also help growth, UBS said.
Conversely, UBS states that iPod sales were down 3% for April on a year-ago basis, although iPod units sales were up 33% in April 2006, compared to 2005. However, the report notes that Apple's international iPod sales could help reach UBS's 9.6 million iPods target for the quarter.
