Acer to beat HP and become biggest consumer notebook maker in Q3 2009?

Posted on Tuesday, August 11 2009 @ 05:11:34 CEST by

Market sources cited by DigiTimes claim Acer may become world's largest consumer notebook maker this quarter, as the gap with HP has narrowed to only 0.5 percent in the second quarter. HP will likely remain the biggest overall notebook maker though, as Acer's position in the enterprise notebook market is still weak.
HP shipped around 4.86 million consumer notebooks in the second quarter with Acer trailing closely behind with shipments of 4.75 million units. Consumer segment market shares were separated by only 0.5pp, the sources noted, citing figures from research firm IDC.

Since HP is expected to reduce its notebook outsourcing to Taiwan makers in July and August while Acer is gearing up to heavily promote consumer products such as ultra-thin models in the third quarter, chances favor Acer becoming the new head of consumer notebook vendors.
