Gartner Predicts Apple Will Double U.S., Europe PC Share by 2011

Even if you don’t believe it, it’s interesting in that even a few years ago, you’d never have seen a prediction like this from Gartner. And if they’re right, the math is just spectacular for Apple: it’s not like Apple is expanding into the low-end budget computer market, so if they do double their share, it’ll take place entirely in the middle-to-high end of the market.

Update: Nice reminder from The Macalope regarding Gartner’s Apple-savviness (where by “savviness”, I mean “jackassyness”): a little over a year ago two of their analysts called on Apple to entirely quit the hardware business and license Mac OS X to Dell.
