Apple Loses the Fight with Microsoft and Google in US Schools

New data shows that Google is the king of the mobile computing devices in the United States, while Microsoft leads the charts in all the other markets, with Apple far behind in third place.

Futuresource Consulting says Google’s Chrome OS is currently the leading choice for powering what it calls mobile PCs, which include laptops, netbooks, tablets, and Chromebooks, in schools in the United States.

No less than 59.8% of these devices were powered by Chrome OS in the third quarter of 2017, up from 57.8% in Q2, while Microsoft’s Windows was the runner-up with 22.3%, again an increase from 18.4%.

In the rest of the world, however, there’s also a huge gap between the first two places, but this time in favor of Microsoft. Windows is leading the pack with 66.5%, up from 57.1%, while Android is the second choice with 14.4%, down from 24.4%. In this case, Chrome is far behind with just 7.7%.
