According to DigiTimes Research, the cumulative shipments of the five major laptop manufacturers (not including Apple) in October decreased by 13% compared to the previous month and by almost 40% in annual terms. Analysts note that the reduction in demand from ordinary users, enterprises and educational institutions is to blame.
If we talk about the market structure, then Lenovo is the leader in terms of deliveries, although the advantage over HP is small (alas, specific figures are not given). Dell, in third place, is the only company that managed to increase the volume of shipments, but everything is very relative here: plus only because of the comparison with the low base of September, when demand in the corporate sector sank badly.
And most of all in October, Acer and Asus reduced deliveries: each by more than 20% compared to September. But there is nothing to do with enterprises or the educational sector: the deliveries of these two companies sank due to weak consumer demand.
Analysts note that the combined shipments of Taiwan’s top three contract notebook manufacturers fell 13% in October from September. Separately, it is noted that the supply of Quanta, which is responsible for assembling the MacBook, has fallen sharply.
But the problem with the butterfly keyboard will definitely not happen again. Apple is working on a folding MacBook with a flexible screen
Apple has launched a project to develop a 20.25-inch foldable mobile device. Probably, we are talking about a folding MacBook.
Interestingly, the project allegedly does not have a specific plan for commercialization, and Apple took up development in order to keep up with the market. At the same time, there is a forecast according to which a similar product can enter the market in 2027.
When unfolded, the screen diagonal, as already mentioned, will be 20.25 inches, and when folded it will be 15.3 inches. At the same time, to implement the Apple project, you need to use OLED screens. Resource The Elec says that to begin with, the company should transfer the rest of the MacBook and iPad to such panels, although it is not very clear why different products cannot have different types of panels. However, we have heard more than once about the company’s plans to release iPad Pro with OLED screens. As for the MacBook, the source says that Apple plans to release such models with OLED screens in 2025.
Also recall that earlier on the Web there were rumors that Apple is working on a foldable tablet. It may come out before a foldable laptop.
Alienware to release 18-inch gaming laptop for the first time since 2015
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is scheduled to take place next month in Las Vegas, January 5-8. Alienware has confirmed the reveal of a new gaming laptop at the event.
Alienware Short Video Teaserposted on Twitter confirms a key feature of his upcoming proposal. The device boasts a large 18-inch display. It will be Alienware’s first 18-inch gaming laptop since 2015, when a Dell subsidiary announced a limited edition dual-GPU edition. The brand then focused on 14-inch and 17-inch models. The tweet reads: “Signs around you, something big is coming soon.”
Presumably, the device will receive a 4K resolution display with a high refresh rate, modern processors and graphics cards, as well as an improved cooling system.
Clearly, Alienware’s 18-inch gaming laptop will fall into the premium price range.
