Um... which 3% would that be? :-)

>> Macs accounted for 2.9% of all personal computers sold through retail

One could argue that "sold through retail stores" implies that this is
3% of the lower 97%... I mean, doesn't the top 3%ers either buy
computers through mail order or build their own?

But wait, 3% of 97% *is* 2.91%! So maybe retail Mac buyers are really 3%
of 97% of the lower 97% who buy their computers retail?

I think I'd better stop here before I confuse myself.
