DigiTimes has some figures about laptop shipments and they aren't pretty. The Taiwanese site reports that the top five global brands saw their combined shipments tank 38 percent year-over-year in February. Over 90 percent of the laptop supply chain production happens in China, which was the first nation to get hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Among the global top-5 brands, only Dell and Lenovo shipped over one million notebooks in February. Dell, which had its ODM partners keep some workers at plants to work during the Lunar New Year holidays, had an on-month shipment decline only larger than those of Lenovo and Asustek, and was the largest brand worldwide for the second consecutive month in February, Digitimes Research's numbers show.
