HP-Chromebook-11

Chromebook notebooks are emerging as a surprise, but welcomed as a hope amid the overall forecasts for the stagnant PC market. The latest data of International Data Corporation for the first time ever, sales of laptops with Google’s operating system are ahead of those on a Mac in the United States.

For the first quarter Apple has sold about 1.76 million notebooks, while Dell, HP, Acer and Lenovo sold approximately two million Chromebooks with Chrome OS.

This is good news for the platform, especially given rumors last fall that Google is preparing to abandon Chrome OS.

“Demand for PCs in the U.S. remains sluggish,” said IDC Research Director, Devices & Displays, Linn Huang. “However, we should be entering a period of reprieve. Peak corporate and education buying seasons have historically started in the second quarter. With some IT buyers thinking about early Windows 10 transitions and with the potential continued ascent of Chromebooks in U.S. K-12, the PC market should experience a modest rebound in the coming months.”

However, we should not ignore the fact that consumers can buy about four Chromebook notebooks for the price of a Mac, and it took the joint sales of four manufacturer to be overtaken Apple.
