Sales tumble for top notebook vendors

Written by Fudzilla staff



Down 20 percent in April

The PC slump seems to be getting even worse. Digitimes Research found that the top five notebook brands suffered a 20 percent shipment drop in April. 

The top ODMs experienced a drop of 14 percent and it seems vendors are preparing to transition to new models, so they are trying to cut inventory from March.

HP, Acer and Lenovo are said to have experienced a drop in excess of 20 percent. All other vendors underperformed as well. It is expected that Q2 notebook shipments will be down 15 percent year-on-year.

All Taiwan-based ODMs saw their shipments drop by double digits in April.
