As today’s latest technology in electronics has largely centered on the latest and greatest in mobile trends, desktops are still holding strong, particularly when it comes to all-in-ones – and Apple.
Although portable Macs made up 74 percent of the company’s sales in 2011, its desktop sales still hit a new record, according to research firm DisplaySearch.
Holding a 33 percent share of the market, Apple is the largest manufacturer of all-in-one desktops, followed by Lenovo, and Hewlett-Packard in third.
HP revealed two new desktop PCs at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show. Its HP Omni all-in-one desktop released this month is said to be the company’s answer to Apple’s iMac, and the Pavilion HPE h9 Phoenix is geared to gamers. According to Bloomberg, this was an attempt for HP to "stand out from a flood of portable technology" at CES.
DisplaySearch believes that despite the popularity of today’s portable devices, the all-in-one desktop market will continue to grow, perhaps reaching 23.3 million units by 2014.
Yesterday, Apple revealed the company experienced its best quarter in its corporate history, with earnings increasing more than 117 percent to $13.06 million. Gross margin was 44.7 percent – up from 38.5 percent in the year-ago quarter – and international sales contributed for a whopping 58 percent of the revenue for the quarter.
The popularity of the company’s mobile devices was revealed once again with a reported 37 million iPhones, 15 million iPads, and 5.2 million Macs sold.
