    Actually, 772,000 is a 51% increase from 1,517,000
    You got the second number right, though.

    50.9%, actually.

    > 71,100,000 - 62,700,000 = 8,400,000 = 13.4% increase


    But remember that the Macs themselves are counted in there.

    Try this (figures in thousands):

    ((71,100 - 2,289) - (62,700 - 1,517)) / 62,700) = 12.5%

    So when you compare the Macs growth to every PC *but* the Mac, the Mac
    is growing four times as fast.

    Yes I thought of that but it was late and I couldn't be bothered... He
    wasn't going to take any notice anyway. Glad you did it though.

    I think the turn-around generally has been amazing so far.
