Macs continue to grow in popularity especially now that they have a slimmer price tag (thanks to a slimmer laptop).

J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz. Sales of the device have seen a 333% year-over-year rise, with a projected annual revenue of a whopping $2.2 billion.

“We believe that the growth rate of the MacBook Air stands to moderate, but we expect the product to exhibit increasing contribution to the overall Mac business,” Moskowitz wrote. “(The fourth quarter of calendar 2010) was the first quarter in which the MacBook Air accounted for greater than 10% of total Apple Mac units. More importantly, the MacBook Air accounted for 15% of total notebook sales during the quarter, versus 5% in the prior year.”

The Mac is becoming so important to the Lock Poker business model that the online poker company recently promoted a hightly popular iPad giveaway.  Being that the iPad is essentially an overgrown iPhone, one cannot play online poker on that particular device.
