Apple notebook sales

DisplaySearch has published its latest quarterly Notebook PC Shipment and Forecast Report, which shows that the notebook PC market grew 35% year over year in the first quarter of 2008 to 31 million units. Apple, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo all significantly outpaced the year over market growth, with Apple posting 61 percent unit growth from 891,000 units to 1.43 million units. That growth gave Apple a 4.6 percent share of the overall market, making it the seventh largest notebook vendor.

HP remained number 1 in the notebook PC market for the seventh consecutive quarter, maintaining an almost 2 million-unit lead over number 2 Dell. The analysis indicates that the "increasing transition of consumers from desktop PCs to notebook PCs is having a direct impact on brands; growth and market share. Brands with established enterprise and retail presences have had the most success in growing market share in the past several quarters. Additionally, brands that cater to small and medium businesses, either through a dedicated product line."
