Strong demand for laptops continued last year due to the massive transition of users to remote work and education, which resulted in 268 million laptops shipped during the year. This is a record value, 19% higher than in 2020. Such data is contained in a report prepared by the specialists of the analytical company Strategy Analytics.
“As we saw a slowdown in Chromebook demand in the second half of 2021, demand for Windows picked up sharply in the fourth quarter of 2021,” said Eric Smith, Head of Product Strategy Analytics. “Windows 11 Enterprise Updates provided a strong boost to Windows laptops during the quarter across all regions.”
Smith added that Windows has also remained a popular choice in the consumer segment due to the demand for gaming laptops.
Lenovo sold 63.4 million laptops in 2021, up 16% from 2002. Now Lenovo owns 24% of the notebook market. In second place with 22% is HP. This manufacturer was able to increase sales by 14%. The full data of the top five manufacturers according to the results of the quarter and the year as a whole are given in the tables:

The power of a modular laptop. Framework provides kits that allow you to upgrade to the latest Intel CPUs
Modular laptops on the market are a rarity. The Framework model is just one of those. And now it can be upgraded to the latest Intel CPUs.
Earlier this year, the company released an updated Alder Lake laptop, but now the manufacturer has said that owners of the older model will soon be able to buy a kit that will allow them to replace old components with new ones.
The old model was equipped with a previous generation Intel platform, which means that the motherboard also needs to be changed. Kits will cost a minimum of $450 for a Core i5-1240P board. For a fee with a Core i7-1280P, you will have to pay $ 1,050. You can also purchase a set of motherboard with CPU and a new aluminum cover. You will need to pay an extra $90 for the cover.
The kits are already on the site, but for now you can only pre-order.

Intel video cards are still practically unavailable on the market, but sooner or later this will change. So, from today, the Machenike Discovery Edition 2022 laptop with a mid-budget Intel 3D card is available for pre-order.
The laptop is equipped with Arc A730M, which configuration includes 3072 cores and 12 GB of memory. Only the Arc A750M is older.
The laptop is also equipped with a 16-inch 2.5K screen with a frame rate of 165 Hz, a Core i7-12700H processor, 16 GB of RAM and an 80 Wh battery.
The laptop is asking for about $1,275, but a promotion is expected on June 6, during which the price will drop to $1,110. At the same time, there is no information about the date of delivery, so, perhaps, such a laptop will arrive to its customers only in two or three months.
