Apple's Web site is a continuing success, beating all other US PC manufacturers' sites last week.

The Apple site was a number one hit for the third week running, according to a story from Mac Observer that cites PC Data's Top 10 Hardware Site Rankings report.

The ranks are the same as the week before, with – an online retailer that has recently been running a high-profile ad campaign – coming in at number two. Compaq and Hewlett-Packard at numbers three and four, and Gateway and Dell jointly in equal fifth place.

Apple saw a big rise in traffic last week, from 135,000 unique visitors to 1,096,000.
