Chromebook shipments increased 67% with Acer leading the way

Acer_Chromebook_13Chromebook shipments will double during 2014 compared with 2013, according to data from ABI Research. During the first quarter of 2014, Chromebook shipments increased 67%, compared with the same quarter last year. Seventy-four percent of Chromebooks shipped during Q1 were manufactured by Acer, Samsung, and HP, the top three leading vendors. Acer controls 37% of the market, and ABI projects it will maintain the lead of market share into next year. It’s likely that Samsung’s share of the market will drop, as the firm recently announced its exit from the European Chromebook market.
