Acer beats HP in European computer sales

Posted on Monday, October 20 2008 @ 17:20:58 CEST by

Acer has taken the lead in the European, the Middle Eastern and African (EMEA) computer markets thanks to strong sales of its netbooks:
HP is still the top seller of computers world wide, but Acer has taken the top spot for EMEA, according to a report from Gartner.

HP’s slow entry into the netbook sector contributed to it losing the leading spot in EMEA for the first time since its merger with Compaq. Netbook-focused Acer took over, with 20.6 per cent of the market to HP’s 18.7 per cent. The analyst firm noted that both Acer and Eee PC-maker Asus saw strong growth.

Across EMEA, PC shipments jumped 26 per cent year-on-year, to 28.8 million this quarter. Globally, PC shipments hit 80.6 million in the third quarter, a 15 per cent increase year-on-year.
