What surprises me was Asus graphic card and Acer notebook. For Asustek to give up the major OEM mainboard contract a couple of years ago and gain such as status in graphic card proves the company is focus on goal setting and getting the job done right. Acer used to be big in OEM desktops shows they can meet Dell head on in notebook segment.

I am glad Toshiba/Samsung optical drive did not even have a spot on the chart as my 3 months old DVD/RW drive dropped dead suddernly without saying goodbye.

Apparently so, from >30,000 readers. Is there anything else you don't understand or need to ask from a simple pie chart?

You could disagree with the findings totally, meaning you are the minority of the opinion which is considered in the pie chart. You are there, just a bit smaller

SuperB cooler, but not everywhere available. Here in Belgium for example almost nowhere.
