Almost 6 million toys shipped


According to
DisplaySearch research, one in five laptops shipped in Q1 were, in fact, netbooks.

Acer is still dominating the netbook market, with a 30.5 percent market share, and has outsold closest rival Asus by almost double. Overall, however, Hewlett Packard is the top player in the laptop market, with a 24.1 percent share and 7.3 million units shipped.

About 45 percent of all netbooks were sold in EMEA, while North America trailed with 26 percent. Analysts attribute the success in Europe to telecom subsidies and payment plans.

In the laptop market the gap shrinks, and EMEA accounts for 38 percent, while North America accounts for 30 percent. Acer has overtaken Dell to become the second largest laptop vendor. Toshiba and Lenovo are in fourth and fifth place respectively.
