Laptop sales 'rocket'

The world's two largest contract laptop builders have reported a dramatic increase in sales for the month of March, according to PC World. Quanta Computer shipped 2.4 million laptops that month, marking the most the company has ever produced in such a timeframe. The company's revenue grew 31 percent to $1.55 billion US. Meanwhile, Quanta's competition at Compal Electronics shipped its second-highest monthly total, 1.78 million laptops, and saw its revenue rise to $1.059 billion.

The figures back a recent study by IDC, which suggested that laptop sales are growing so quickly that they may begin outselling desktops as soon as 2011. This has been attributed mainly to the prevalence of wireless Internet, and an increase in the number of travelling workers.
