Notebooks overtake Desktops
Its interesting to note that Notebook sales have now overtaken Desktop sales. The shift is due to the requirement that consumers have in terms of portable computing. With a lot of time being spent away from home, at work, business travel and the like, portability becomes critical.
According to data from research firm iSupply, preliminary figures for the quarter show notebook PC shipments shot up about 40 per cent from the same period a year ago to 38.6 million. Meanwhile desktop shipments fell about 1.3 per cent to 38.5 million.
