US Most Mac Users in S.Francisco

Apple's (AAPL) share of the U.S. PC market is still shy of 10%, according Gartner's first quarter 2011 report, but some parts of the country are more Mac friendly than others.

Drawing on research gathered between June 2 and 8 by Chitika's ad network, which serves more than than 70 million impressions per day, MacDailyNews reports that San Francisco is the country's No. 1 Mac-using city with a 24% market share. New York City is No. 2, with 23.3%.

Six of the top 10 Mac cities are in California, but statewide Apple's share is only 14%. That puts it behind Vermont (19.55%), Hawaii (19.41%) and Maine (15.99%). To find the lowest concentration of Macs you have to travel to West Virginia or Wyoming (4.19% apiece).
