Laptop sales are continuing to climb and low cost ultraportables like the Asus Eee PC deserve at least some of the blame/credit. That’s according to a new report from IDC.
The report shows that desktop PC sales are down a bit this year in the US, but are still on the rise in other parts of the world. What’s more interesting is that portable computer sales are shooting up both in the US and abroad.
Western Europe saw a 60% increase in consumer portable computer sales over last year, with low cost computers like the Eee PC accounting for a significant portion of the market.
