Apple is not looking to leave its top position in the global PC market anytime soon, as the company has been declared to become the No.1 PC retailer once again.

According to Apple Insider, Canalys has stated that the Cupertino company has delivered more than 20-million units of iPad and Mac in the Q1 2014, consequently remaining in the top position. In the previous, Apple informed that it has delivered 16.3 million iPads and 4.1 million Macs in the specific quarter. However, the sales of the iPad were declined in March 2014.

Tim Coulling, the senior analyst of Canalys, said, “The fall in iPad shipments in (the first quarter) was the sharpest ever.” He added, “Consumers, and increasingly businesses, are continuing to adapt, with tablets acting as disruptors and finding their place as desktop and notebook replacements. Apple’s ecosystem and the recent launch of Office for iPad should ensure it is well placed to remain a leader for some time.”

On the other hand, the second place has been taken by Lenovo with 15 million sales of tablet and typical computers, while HP grabs the third position. Apple’s fierce rival. Samsung, slips to the fourth spot, following the decrease of sales. The fifth place has been taken by HP with almost 10 million sales.

However, the ranking shows that the major companies are far away from Apple’s impressive PC sales, consequently strengthening the possibility of the tech giant remaining in the position throughout the entire year.
