The IDC worldwide numbers for the fourth quarter came out last week and Apple came out with their numbers today. If you combine the Apple Mac and iPad units shipped you get this picture…

If you take a look at the same numbers from my post last week for 3Q 2010 you’ll find Apple ranked 5th with a 8.6% market share – that’s a pretty nice jump for Apple!

Aside: For those interested in how I generated the numbers…subtract Mac shipment figures from ‘Others’ category and combine with iPad sales to generate the total Apple shipments. If there are any statistic gurus out there who want to correct me on the number crunching, please do so. While this is only a personal interest thing, I’d like it to be as accurate as possible.

With MacOS and iOS you have a somewhat bifurcated Apple story. So taking a look at it from an operating system standpoint and comparing to 3Q 2010…
