Survey Most iPad owners have Macs, iPhones
iPad owners are huge Apple fans who already own Macs, an iPhone, and at least one iPod, according to a weekend survey from Piper Jaffray.
Piper Jaffray senior analyst Gene Munster, who coordinated a survey of 448 iPad buyers on Saturday, said 74 percent of iPad owners surveyed currently own a Mac, while just 26 percent own a PC.
Apple has also done a good job attracting iPhone owners, Munster found. About 66 percent of those surveyed said that they currently own an iPhone. A whopping 99 percent of those iPhone owners say they will use their handset in conjunction with the iPad.
Not surprisingly, 92 percent of iPad owners currently own an iPod. And out of that group, 97 percent said they will use both products going forward.
The survey also shed light on the preferences of iPad buyers: 39 percent were buying a 16GB iPad model, 32 percent a 32GB model, and 28 percent a 64GB model.
It also found that 74 percent plan to surf the Web on the iPad, 38 percent plan to read books, 34 percent expect to check e-mail, and 26 percent plan to watch video.
Another interesting fact: a whopping 78 percent of respondents said that they didn’t even consider buying an iPad alternative prior to picking up Apple’s tablet on Saturday.
By the way, Munster may know a lot of iPad buyers but he may need to re-evaluate his powers of prediction. Over the weekend, he upped his estimate of first-day iPad sales from 200,000-300,000 to 600,00-700,000. But on Monday, Apple released its first-day sales figures: 300,000.
