Desktop sales strong, notebooks increasing too

Business Line : Desktop sales may cross 56 lakh units: MAIT

Desktop sales in fiscal 2006-07 are expected to cross 56 lakh units, according to a report by Manufacturers’ Association for Information Technology (MAIT), an industry body. Desktops and laptops taken together crossed 12 lakh units for the quarter April-June of FY2006-07.

But another important point is:

Notebook sales touched 1.8 lakh units recording 125 per cent year-on-year growth and 18 per cent sequential growth. Server consumption is expected to accelerate in the future, with increased investments in corporates, especially manufacturing and retail.
