2015 Laptop Sales

2015 Laptop Sales

Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I am doing alright. I having been busy thinking maybe we should migrate our server from a Linux OS to a Windows OS? Lol I am serious, I have had a Windows Server before and I actually enjoyed using and managing it. I am sort of getting tired of Linux’s crap! But anyway, I’ll wait a few more months before I make such a serious decision, hehe, read on…

Today we have some really good news, especially if you work for Google. Can you believe that Chromebooks have outsold Windows laptops in this quarter!? It’s huge news, it means a lot of people are really buying these Chromebooks and this is the first time this has EVER happened. This news comes direct from NDP.

Chromebook sales through the U.S. B2B channels increased 43 percent during the first half of 2015, helping to keep overall B2B PC and tablet sales from falling.

Sales of PCs and tablets through U.S. B2B channels were flat during the first half of 2015, at 7.3 million units according to The NPD Group’s Distributor Track and Reseller Tracking Services. This, however, is a significant decline from the 21 percent unit increase for the same time period in 2014, which was fueled by the strong XP-driven growth in Windows desktops and the continued sales expansion of Chromebooks.

Sales of Google OS-equipped (Android and Chrome) devices saw a 29 percent increase over 2014 propelled by Chromebook sales, while Apple devices declined 12 percent and Windows devices fell 8 percent.

Driven by Chromebooks, notebooks were the strongest product category in B2B client devices during the first half of the year. Apple MacBook sales increased 27 percent year-to-date and Windows notebooks grew 3 percent. Overall, tablets sales slowed their decline, down 7 percent following a 12 percent decline in the first half of 2014—iPads dropped nearly 20 percent and Android Tablets 8 percent, but Windows tablets (primarily Surface) saw a 35 percent sales increase over the prior year.”
