Year-over-year desktop sales were down about 4 percent. Over the past year, the tabletop segment has wobbled a bit but has recovered towards the end. The tablet and standard laptop segment also showed a steady rise.
The Chromebook category made the real boom in the market. Although it declined slightly on a quarter-on-quarter basis, it achieved massive growth of 275 percent year-on-year. The fact that it was a little more affordable made the segment more attractive.
