Punters flocked to all-in-one desktops in 2011
Sales soar by 40%
The all-in-one desktop PC market is booming, with world sales up 39 per cent during 2011.
Some 14.5m of the screen-centric machines shipping during the past 12 months, market watcher DisplaySearch said this week. It reckons the total will top 23.3m all-in-ones by 2014.
A third of the machines that shipped in 2011 were Apple iMacs, with the remainder being divided between Lenovo and HP.
Apple took 32.9 per cent of the market in Q3 2011, Lenovo 22.7 per cent and HP 21.4 per cent. Those figures are set to reflect the full-year scores.
HP took the wraps off its latest AiO, the Omni 27, today. LG said it will show off its new V300 AiO at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. ®
