Apple is Europe's largest education vendor

Gartner says Apple is top of the class

Apple is the number one supplier to the west European education market, according to Gartner.

The company once again took first place in western Europe in the first-quarter, grabbing 17.3 percent of the education market (all CPUs including servers) and 18.4 percent share in the combined desktop and notebook markets.

Apple continues to gain ground in the UK education market, where it's now the second biggest vendor in terms of desktop and overall sales, Gartner's figures suggest.

The news is a consolidation of Apple's continuing success within Europe's education sector. It overtook Dell in terms of UK education marketshare last October, and claimed the top spot in European education sales in February last year.

Apple's education market share in western Europe in 2005 was 15.2 percent, relegating Dell, with 14.7 percent, to second place.

Apple market share in the UK education market during the fourth quarter of 2005 was 12.5 percent.
