One in ten notebooks shipped with a touchscreen, claims Displaybank
Almost one in ten notebook computers shipped in the first quarter of 2013 have touchscreens, according to a market research firm's report. It is claimed by <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Displaybank</a> that 4.57 million of the notebooks used the displays out of a total shipment figure of 46 million, a rise of 51.8 percent compared to the previous quarter. <br />
<br />
While the IHS-owned research company notes the touch-enabled notebook market is still in its initial stage, it still believes "the penetration rate of touch screen notebooks is quite high," <a href="" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> <em>Digitimes</em>. As a whole, the market is apparently expected to keep its shipments of touchscreen notebooks at around 10-percent, but Displaybank states Lenovo, Acer, Asus, and other brands from the Greater China region are aiming for more than 20-percent. <br />
<br />
Though a 20-percent shipment rate of notebooks with touchscreens is possible, computer manufacturers face a bleak year for shipments overall, after both <a href=" ring.downturns/" rel='nofollow'>IDC and Gartner</a> last month revealed the worst year-on-year drop in quarterly computer shipments for almost 20 years.
