Top 9 notebook PC shipments in Q1/08

DisplaySearch revealed in its latest Quarterly Notebook PC Shipment and Forecast Report that the notebook PC market grew 35% Y/Y in Q1/08 to 31 million units.
Apple, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo all significantly out-paced the Y/Y market growth, while Acer, with the inclusion of Gateway and Packard Bell numbers from a year ago, very slightly trailed the market’s annual growth rate.

HP remained Top1 in the notebook PC market for the seventh consecutive quarter, maintaining an almost 2 million-unit lead over Top2 Dell. In the seasonally slow first quarter of the year, HP also managed to increase their market share Q/Q in five of six regions. Dell was less successful in Q1/08, increasing share Q/Q in two regions.

Like HP, Top3 Acer posted Q/Q shared gains in five of six regions. HP was Top1 in three of six regions, and in the fast-growing APAC market, closed to within a few thousand units of Top1 Acer.
