    According to research firm IDC, Apple has dropped from the No. 4 purveyor of laptops in the U.S. last year to No. 5 this spring. The firm estimates that Apple has shipped 12.5 percent fewer laptops than the same time last year, even as it maintained its 7.6 percent market share.



    Leapfrogging Apple to take the No. 4 spot is Toshiba, now estimated to be shipping 7.7 percent of all laptops in the U.S., thanks to system such as the Mini NB205 Netbook. If you're keeping score, IDG estimates that Dell remains No. 1, with 26.3 percent of the market, closely followed by HP, with Acer showing strong year-over-year growth to hit 12.6 percent of the American market. It looks as if all those $299 Aspire One Netbooks are starting to pay off.

    PS: I seriously think that HCL or Wipro sells more laptops in India than Apple in USA :)

    1) Recession
    2) laptop hunter ad campaign
    3) overpricing of macbook and macbook pro.
    4) price cuts and offers by all major PC manufacturers
    5) more budget consious (and tech conscious) buyers
