Take from this what you will, but for the very first time ever, mobile PC shipments outnumbered desktop shipments in China, according to the latest NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly China PC Shipment and Forecast Report. There's a bit of a caveat that goes with the claim. The mobile PC segment, as DisplaySearch calculates it, includes tablet PC shipments (in addition to notebooks and mini-notes), of which China is the third largest market in the world. "Although shipments in desktop PCs are flat, the mobile PC market continued to show strong growth, reaching 26.5 million in 2H’11, up 25 percent... Read more...
There are several interesting takeaways from the latest graphics chip shipments and suppliers' market share data from Jon Peddie Research (JPR). The first one is that Intel continues to dominate the field with a demanding 59.1 percent share of the market, down from 60.4 percent sequentially but up from 52.5 percent one year prior. Intel's dominance is a testament to the concept of integrated graphics, which is an area NVIDIA ditched to focus on discrete graphics. The second thing that's interesting is that AMD was the only major GPU player to increase its graphics chip market share sequentially.... Read more...
Despite what PC fatalists would have you believe, there's still a market for desktop and notebook systems. Sure, the PC market isn't growing like gangbusters at the moment, but it is growing nonetheless. That's saying something when the whole world seems preoccupied with tablets, smartphones, handheld games systems, and other non-PC devices. The number crunchers over at Gartner tallied worldwide PC shipments at 91.8 million units for the third quarter of 2011, which represents a 3.2 percent increase from the same quarter one year ago. That wasn't quite up to Gartner's expectations, which predicted... Read more...
Market research firm Gartner put together some preliminary figures on the state of the PC industry with mixed results. On one hand, worldwide PC shipments jumped past 85.2 million units in the second quarter of 2011, a 2.3 percent increase from the same period a year prior. However, the growth is somewhat marred by failing to meet Gartner's earlier projection of 6.7 percent growth. "After strong growth in shipments of consumer PCs for four years, driven by strong demand for mini-notebooks and low-priced consumer notebooks, the market is shifting to modest, but steady growth," said Mikako Kitagawa,...

Here's something that shouldn't really come as a surprise: tablet PC shipments are on the rise, and if reports are accurate, they'll continue to rise. The Consumer Electronics Association is watching the rise of tablet PCs closely. This year, they're likely to be one of the most purchased devices out, particularly by consumers who already own other devices. The tablet PC isn't new to the industry, but the iPad has created a new whirlwind of interest that should lead to high sales throughout the year. We already know that the industry as a whole is on pace to break a lot of records when it comes... Read more...
Quanta Computer. You may have never heard of them. You've probably never visited their website. You've definitely never seen an advertisement for their company on the television. So why are they so important? They're the contract notebook computer maker for some of the world's biggest laptop brands, including Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Sony. So every notebook that you see from Dell, HP or Sony was actually build in the same factory (or set of factories). That's pretty wild, but it's true. Investors and economists play close attention to what happens at Quanta, even though most consumers could not... Read more...
You'd never know we were in a worldwide recession by looking at the GPU market. According to numbers just released by Jon Peddie Research, the estimated number of GPUs shipped during the third quarter (Q3) of 2008 represent the "largest increase in quarter to quarter shipments in six years." In Q3, over 111 million GPUs shipped, which is a 17.8-percent jump from the second quarter (Q2) of 2008. In Q3 of 2007, 91 million GPUs shipped. Of the 111 million GPUs shipped in Q3, 61.9 million of them were classified as desktop GPUs. Interestingly, Jon Peddie Redearch reports that over one-third of systems... Read more...

Compare that against an increase of just 12.1 percent for overall worldwide PC shipments (both desktop and laptops) for the same time period, as reported by iSuppli.  HP holds the top market share spot with almost 21 percent of all notebooks...

DigiTimes reports that widescreen notebooks have reached an impressive 79% of total market share for mobile systems. North America has fallen in love with wide-aspect notebooks as the market share for that region is an overwhelming 85%. In stark contrast however is the market in Japan where the traditional 4:3 aspect screens still hold a strong 48% of the market share. With notebooks being much more capable in terms of multimedia applications, it is not surprising to see that the widescreen LCD is gaining more and more traction though there will always be a home for the standard 4:3 aspect...

As Yahoo! News reports, HP's computer shipments have jumped 15% from a year ago, while Dell has only gained 4% in total shipments.
