Netbooks driving laptop revenue down

Posted on Monday, October 12 2009 @ 08:08:39 CEST by

DisplaySearch claims that while netbooks are driving increased laptop unit sales, they're doing it at the expensive overall revenue.
Inexpensive netbook computers are driving down revenue for the overall laptop market, even as they increase unit sales for laptops, a research firm said.

In the second quarter, the overall portable PC market was $26.4 billion, up 10% from the first quarter but down 5% from the same period a year ago, DisplaySearch said in a report released Thursday. Strong growth in netbook revenue, 264% more than a year ago, drove their overall share of the mobile PC market to 11.7%.

Nevertheless, the low price of the netbooks, typically $300, was a major contributor to the overall revenue decline in the market year-to-year, the research firm said.
