Notebook Shipments Surpass Desktops for the first time ever
The computer industry is still growing despite the fact that some PC makers are unable to hit previously high profit margins. Notebooks continue to be very popular and have reached a milestone.
IDC reports that notebook shipments have surpassed desktop shipments for the first time. In Q3 2008, notebook shipments were 55.2% of the PC market. IDC says that the record setting ratio was helped by a record number of notebooks shipped during the quarter. Netbooks have been making up a significant portion of computer shipments, which would have helped the ratio as well.
In Q3 2008, over 9.5 million notebooks were shipped in the U.S. for 18% growth year over year and quarter over quarter. Data shows that all leading computer venders shipped greater numbers of notebooks during the quarter. In fact, DailyTech reported in September that Apple had set record sales numbers with many of the sales being notebooks.
