HP retakes its number one PC seller position from Apple®
Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) has pushed aside Apple Inc. to retake its number one seller of personal computer position in the first quarter of this fiscal. According to research firm Canalys, HP lose out the top position to Apple four months ago.
According to the research firm, HP sold 40,000 more units than Apple’s 15.8 million, which included 11.8 million iPads, in the first three months.
“If you look at the U.S., pads are approaching 40% of all client PC shipments,” said Chris Jones, the VP and Principal Analyst of Canalys. “The rest of the market here was down slightly in Q1. The pad proposition for US consumers is very strong – thanks to the wider choice in content and apps – and the impact on the other categories is more severe.”
“Most of the leading PC vendors have done a reasonable job of offsetting the declines in their netbook shipments over the past year with increased pad business,” said Canalys Research Analyst Tom Evans. “Samsung and Lenovo are two that stand out in terms of substantially increasing overall volume, though ASUS has performed well too. The challenge is breaking out into the really big volumes to challenge the leaders – Apple and Amazon. So far, only Samsung has shown it can routinely ship more than a million pads a quarter.”
