There is room for netbook growth in 2010 according to iSuppli

The anticipation surrounding the iPad in the months leading up to its official announcement was intense. Once the product was officially announced, many competitors started saying that the iPad might be Apple's worst product ever.

Despite what competitors and analysts thought, the iPad has sold very well for Apple – over a million of the devices have been sold so far. The iPad is selling so well that analyst Katy Huberty reports the iPad is cannibalizing the notebook and netbook market.

Huberty said, "U.S. consumer PC, and especially notebook growth decelerated in January when Apple introduced the iPad and again in April when the iPad launched. Given the corresponding increase in [average selling prices] in the market, we believe much of the demand shortfall came from netbooks and low-cost notebooks."

The products according to Huberty that are most at risk for cannibalization by the iPad for those who already owned Apple products were the iPod touch and notebooks. Consumers not wanting Apple products were most likely to see the iPad cannibalize the eReaders and notebooks.

The netbook market may be shrinking according to analysts thanks to the iPad, but there is still a market for netbooks in 2010. 
eWeek reports that Acer, HP, and ASUS will lead netbook growth in 2010. Netbooks are on target to post double-digit growth this year (down from previous years of triple-digit growth) while notebook shipments overall are expected to grow 25.5 percent according to numbers from research firm iSuppli. The rebound in the global economy will help growth in all areas of the computer market as consumers and businesses start to upgrade machines.

The standard notebook market is expected to post growth of 21 percent this year with 160.5 million notebooks shipped. One of the biggest growth categories this year is expected to be CULV notebooks with 93 percent growth. 
ISuppli also expects Acer to hold onto the top netbook maker spot for 2010 with ASUS in second, HP in third, Samsung in fourth, and Dell in fifth.

I'd like to see a feature "Worth reading / Not worth reading" related to the articles on this site.
Then I'd like to see them painted red in the landing page, so I don't waste my time reading stuff like this one here.

</dreaming>

Analysts talking about things cannibalising stuff, yeah, very interesting.

Seriously, I just wasted 2 minutes of my life reading through this article for any numbers backing this poop smear of a title.

Hey buddy, stop wasting our time with the ipad--nobody with a brain buys one, we are all tech guys, and none of us are dumb enough to fall into the cult following that is apple.

Defects are not "features" and we are not stupid enough to fall into this masquerade that Steve Jobs has put on for so long.

I am the idiot, yet, you are the one who gets rated down each and every post.

It must be nice to be so naive and living in your mommies basement.

The only thing you pwn, is nothing....

You truly are a loser and while I am sure some people will be sad the day you are banned from here, the rest will throw a party to say good riddance of your idiocy.

If you don't believe the person to be a liar then you yourself are not a liar as well. It's not like we have a complete book of facts and anything not listed is automatically a lie.

PS - It's fun to watch you argue with people, including myself. Your comments are just so..... IDK if there is only one word to describe your posts. I think I'd have to go with.... retarded. I'd have a whole page if I wanted to describe your posting style. Hey everyone, can we all agree that Pirks is now an adjective used to describes posts?

Well, just to be fair here, you said cocks. So, either they are guys or chicks with dicks, but either way, still pretty gay to watch to chicks/guy suck each others cocks.

If you're not an expert in PC assembly, newegg, antivirii, Windows configuration/installation/administration etc etc - it does not mean you don't have brain. WinPCs are not the only existing technology on Earth, you know.

I was speaking only for myself; but in regards to what you said, I do this to waste time. There isn't much to do at 3 AM after all. I would never take anything you say seriously, but trying to figure out how your brain is wired is interesting. My only conclusion so far is that you are schizo, have MPD, or have no brain. None are good choices unfortunately. Other than that I do know you are a hypocrite, and who likes believe hypocrites? I know I don't.

On a more serious note, this could be a nice feature for DT. You'd probably have to make the scale out of 500 or 5000 instead of 5 for it to be meaningful, but it fits the spirit of this site. That way we all know which articles are most deserving of our time.

actually I kinda like this idea, the DT staff would then also know where to focus more of thier time, what subjects DT fans find more interesting.

Well, Apple articles would get rated to shit. I'm not sure what this site would become without the semi-daily Apple article.
