Still, both companies ended up with great financial results as compared to the rest of the competitors:
– Hewlett Packard – 0.33 million (5.8%)
– MSI – 0.32 million (5.7%)
– Dell – 0.16 million ( 2.8%)
Interesting enough, the number six in the top is the One Laptop Per Child organisation with a market share of 2.3% and 0.13 million sold.
All in all, DisplaySearch believes that the emerging netbook market will settle at less than 20% of the laptop PC market in the next 3 years:
“Worldwide demand for these products is forecast to grow rapidly over the next few years with demand from a variety of sources, including early adopters, consumer and enterprise PC customers seeking a smaller or secondary notebook PC, as well as new PC customers in emerging markets. We expect the mini-note PC market to settle at approximately 16% share of the notebook PC market by 2011" said John F. Jacobs, Director of Notebook Market Research.
