Apple Surpasses HP, Becomes Worlds Largest Mobile PC Vendor

According to the latest mobile PC sales estimates from research firm DisplaySearch, Apple is now the world’s largest mobile PC vendor with an impressive 21.1% of the global market, having shipped 13.6 million units in Q2.

DisplaySearch’s figures do count both traditional notebook PCs as well as tablets in their results, giving Apple a clear advantage, but the result is impressive nonetheless. The above chart reflects the actual sales and market share numbers.

Notably, Apple has surpassed Hewlett-Packard, the former leader of the pack in mobile PC sales, who came in with a 15% share and 9.7 million units shipped. Tablet shipments in general are up 400% year-over-year.

    You’re cherry picking and only including mobile PCs and including tablets. Let’s see the number for all PCs.

    1. The post is about mobile PCs and not about PCs so how is the post cherry picking if its focus is only on a particular area?

      Reports are that Apple will be the top PC maker this year also. I agree, I got one because of all of the years of Windows, and the last HP which totally sucked beyond belief and their support did not even help me with the brand new PC I have purchased my first IMac and I am wondering why I never tried one before I love it SO much more than I have ever like any other PC I have owned. I think I listened to comments about Apple and Macs before, silly me all that did was stop me from having the best PC I’ve ever owned. I love it.
