    Chart: HP leads the worldwide PC market for the 1Q2011
    [IMG]http://img1.imagehousing.com/58/05b5...64af6759b7.png[/IMG]

    "Canalys announced in April 28th, 2011, that the PC market grew 7% in Q1 2011, as the pad market, led by Apple's iPad, continued to bolster growth."

    That's how Canalys, the first research firm to count tablets as PCs, began its report on how the market shaped up in the first calendar quarter of 2011.

    The chart includes all desktops, netbooks, notebooks and pads.

    HP leads the PC market share for the 1Q2011 with a 16,6% , followed by Acer with 12,8%, Dell 11,3% , Apple 9,5%, and Lenovo 9,2% .

    Thanks to the iPad, Apple jumped into third place in worldwide PC shipments in Canalys' Christmas quarter report, behind only HP and Acer. In Thursday's report, Dell outsold Apple by 1.5 million units, pushing Apple into fourth place. Apple might have retained its position if it could have manufactured iPad 2s fast enough to meet demand.

    Total tablet shipments for the quarter reached 6.4 million units worldwide, according to Canalys, with the iPad accounting for 74% of those units.

    "Taking into consideration the iPad's 'halo effect' on the company's other products, Apple has grown considerably in most markets worldwide," said Canalys analyst Tim Coulling. "As the iPad 2 and its competitors continue to roll out, we expect pad sales to propel PC market growth for the rest of the year."

    I think Canalys measure the PC market that way , because the pads (tablets) are in some way cannibalizing the netbooks and notebooks sales. (Growth: HP -5,8%, Acer -6,5% )

    However the story doesn´t end there for the year 2011. Acer just launched the Iconia tablets in some markets and HP is about to launch the webOS TouchPad this summer.

    Would be interesting to know , how these figures changed at the end of the current year.

    Worldwide PC market up 7% as pads fuel growth

    However, notice that HP's growth shrank 5.8% compared to Q1'10, while Lenovo's grew 17%. Doing my part to help that trend, I suppose, since I prefer to sell mostly Lenovo. But HP gets a nod every now and then as well. Surprised but not surprised to see a low-quality/cheap manufacturer like Acer in 2nd.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    yup and with the touchpad being released with HP having access to worldwide spectrum more then any other manufacter their numbers will jump as long as the Touchpad is complete with no major bugs in it.

    This is the thing that the detractors can't seem to get in response to how HP will succeed where Palm failed. The is just no way Palm could every have hoped to have even 1/100th the reach that HP has. This is one area that has helped Apple succeed. In addition to having the iPhones sold in retail locations, they have their own stores thus increasing their retail channels.

    HP's advantage will come from their products being sold in MANY more channels than Apple has or could have in the near future. (Then again old Steve likely only wants his wares sold in "certain" establishments being the elitist that he is and all...)

    Ipads being counted in PC shipments seems dubious. Suppose you have no PC, or your PC/Mac is down for the count. You order an iPad of the net. How are you going to activate it? You have to go to someone elses house to get it activated.

    HP Touchpad can be legitimately counted, they don't need another computer to function out the box.

    In this case Elitist = more profitable than HP, and now more profitable than MS.

    I don't like their high computer prices any more than the next frugal consumer, but you can't deny right now they are doing well.

    I also think Canalys should open that big number of "Others" with 35, 94 millions units (40,6%) of the market to know who is included on those figures.

    Maybe Samsung, Sony, that I now remember. Who else.....?
