Notebooks outsold desktop PCs in 2007

Posted on Monday, January 07 2008 @ 11:03:25 CET by

The notebook market has been growing faster than the desktop PC market for a while know but 2007 was the first year that notebooks outsold desktops in the consumer market.
Notebooks for the first time outsold desktops during 2007 for the consumer market. Online retailer Amazon.com reinforced the dominance of the notebook with its sales stats for the holiday season – 16 of its top-selling PCs during the holiday season were notebooks.

While consumers are quickly adopting notebooks to replace desktops, corporations are also making the switch – albeit at a slower pace. For this reason, notebooks still trail desktops slightly in overall PC marketshare.

Notebook sales increased to 31.6 million units during 2007 (a rise of 21 percent) while desktop sales dipped to 35 million units (a fall of 4 percent) for the overall PC market. Notebooks are expected to gain momentum in the coming years and are projected to reach 66 percent overall PC marketshare (71 percent for consumers) by 2011.
One of the things that helps accelerate the sales of notebooks are cheap $399 and $499 models - these offer little power but are more than enough to browse the Internet or do some office work.
