Acer and ASUS gaining marketshare in the US notebook market

Posted on Wednesday, February 11 2009 @ 07:00:03 CET by

DigiTimes cites numbers from research firm IDC which indicate both Acer and Asustek are gaining marketshare in the US notebook market:
In the fourth quarter, Acer shipped 1.4-1.5 million notebooks and netbooks in the US market, taking up third place with a 16% share; whereas Asustek shipped about 300,000 portable PCs, positioning itself at eighth in the rankings with a 3% share, the data indicated.

Acer's fourth-quarter notebook shipments in the US represented a 57% increase from the same quarter of a year earlier, compared to an 8% on-year decline recorded by Dell, the top PC vendor in the US.

Acer shipped a total of over four million notebooks in the US in 2008, trailing Dell's 8.8 million units and HP's 8.77 million units, the data revealed.
The site also writes Asus will start selling its notebooks through Wal-Mart in the second half of 2009, this should push its US notebook shipments to over one million units compared to 650,000 units in 2008.
