A Market Share Surprise (To Me)

I read the following paragraph today and I couldn’t believe it:

“The increase for Apple puts it over 6.3 percent market share in the United States, behind Dell (28 percent) and HP (24.3 percent). Toshiba (5.2 percent) and Gateway (5.2 percent) round out the top five.”*

Macs have higher market share that Toshiba and Gateway? When you think of it in those terms, it’s pretty eye-opening. I’ve heard about Mac market share numbers being in the 6% range but I never knew that Toshiba and Gateway were actually LOWER than that.
