We don’t need to tell you Chromebooks are on the rise. The numbers are have been looking great since the introduction of the Samsung Chromebook, which became successful thanks to its $250 price tag. Just how well are Chromebooks doing, though?
NDP Group put together some stats and the numbers are looking much better than we thought! Chromebooks made up for a whopping 21% of all USA laptop sales in 2013. This may not seem like a big number, but in a market where laptop and desktop sales are decreasing this is a big achievement.
It’s important to note that Chromebooks also have the biggest growth of sales. Chromebooks hold 9.6% of all computers and tablets combined, which is monumental compared to last year’s 0.2%.
With Chromebooks taking 21% of all laptop sales, it’s no wonder Windows is releasing all those Scroogled ads trashing Chrome OS. I mean that is a 5th of all laptop sales! This is no small feat – congrats, Google! Now let’s look forward to an even more amazing 2014. How about that new Samsung Chromebook to start the year?
