That’s the big question on everyone’s minds as Apple’s earnings call looms. Everyone from NPD to Gartner has predicted shrinkage. On the flip side, Apple did release a whole new set of Minis, iMacs and Mac Pros (and even a new XServe) this quarter which usually includes some pent up demand purchasing. Will Apple surprise everyone with flat sales or maybe even slightly higher than last year’s figures? We’d love to see Apple buck the recession.
If not, they could always say they were in the pool.
