ComputerWare asked 500 of its iMac purchasers what computer they owned or had owned. There were 83 new computer owners, 60 who had owned a Windows-based computer, and 357 who had owned a Macintosh. The proportion of first-time computer owners was 83/500 = 0.167. So, 0.167 is an estimate of the proportion of new computer owners.
