Apple biggest mobile PC maker thanks to iPad

Posted on Friday, February 18 2011 @ 18:26:47 CET by

Booming iPad sales have made Apple world's biggest mobile computer shipper in the fourth quarter of 2010. According to market research firm DisplaySearch, Apple captured 17.2 percent of the market when you combine laptop and tablet shipments, while HP follows at 15.6 percent and Acer ranks third with 14.0 percent.
Apple (Cupertino, Calif.) shipped more than 10.2 million notebook and tablet PCs combined in the fourth quarter, nearly a million more units than Hewlett-Packard Co., DisplaySearch said. While the iPad is benefiting from a first-mover advantage, particularly in mature markets, Apple's notebook PC shipment growth rate continues to exceed the industry average, according to the firm.

"While we anticipate increased competition in the tablet PC market later this year with the introduction of Android Honeycomb-based tablets, Appleā€™s iPad business is complementing a notebook line whose shipments widely exceed the industry average growth rate," said Richard Shim, senior analyst at DisplaySearch. "Apple is currently benefiting from significant and comprehensive growth from both sectors of the mobile PC spectrum, notebooks and tablet PCs. Cannibalization seems limited at this point."
