It appears that the low-cost Windows laptop hasn't really dipped into Chromebook sales. While many people approach the Chromebook like the new netbook, they really do offer more - if you're into the Google ecosystem. Even though some of these new Chromebooks are a bit more expensive, the overall sales are up 67% and growing. Way to go alternative OS!
Specifically, ABI found that Acer is continuing to maintain its lead over other vendors in the market, including Samsung, HP, and Dell. By ABI's count, the top three leading vendors, Acer, Samsung, and HP, accounted for 74 percent of all Chromebooks shipped during the first half of 2014. ABI doesn't see the top three changing in the waning months of 2014.
