It's well-recognised that notebook sales are now outstripping desktop PCs, but within the notebook category, netbooks are also claiming an increasing chunk of the market.
According to Gartner's just-released Q2 hardware sales figures for Australia, a total of 677,567 notebooks were shipped. Of those, 97,220 were netbooks (or mini-notebooks, to use Gartner's own preferred terminology). That's just shy of 15% of the market.
According to Gartner, 90% of those sales are into the consumer space. While that's to be expected, it still means that there's nearly 10,000 business users that have decided to use netbooks (though whether, like me, they've been rejected as main work machines and kept for use when out of the office is another question). The growing trend to sell netbooks in a bundle with 3G broadband will presumably see the numbers rise again in Q3.
The size of netbooks is both their strongest selling point and their biggest potential disadvantage. If you've made the netbook choice, explain your reasoning in the comments.
