DisplaySearch reports the number one laptop seller is now HP, followed by Dell and Acer.
The report gives HP 17.7 per cent of global laptop sales, pushing Dell into second place with 17.5 per cent. Acer come in third with 11.8 per cent, followed by Toshiba and Lenovo.

HP's strategy has been to concentrate on developing markets such as Asia Pacific and Latin America. The company still lags behind Dell in the US and Acer in Western Europe, but these are relatively mature markets.

Of the big five producers Acer showed the strongest growth, with sales up nearly 40 per cent. But smaller producers also did well, with Asus growing at 68 per cent, Apple at 63 per cent and Sony at 47 per cent.
