According to a Goldman Sachs report, global shipments of tablet PCs are expected to reach 16.4 million and 35 million units in 2010 & 2011. These would represent about 40% of global demand for notebooks with netbooks being the one mostly affected. Apple being the responsible for most of 2010's figures since they were the first to introduce a successful tablet computer.
We are not surprised by this as our belief is that the days of netbooks are numbered. Although there is debate whether tablets are a fad or not, only time will tell. We believe they are not a fad and are here to stay.
