I am curious about which computer/ laptop manufacturers are the world's best-sellers by brand. I don't want specific models just manufacturers. One article, said that Apple is the world's best seller, while another says HP or even Dell. Where can I find a ranking of the world's best sellers? Finally, are any PCs/Notebooks manufactured in the US? Apple pretends that there's are, but I believe they're built in China near Hong Kong in sweatshops.

Yeah, have to agree with HP, Dell, and Lenovo. I believe there some Gateways still made in the US such as the FX series. Doesn't really matter, as all the parts are made outside the US for the most part.

Hi,
I just know exactly but i think HP. As it Captured about 17.4% of the market in 4Q 2006 and 18.1% in 4Q 2007.. It also provides Very solid and good looking notebooks..

Thank you..

Agreed that HP and Dell have the lions share of that market. Asus is starting to make a better showing at the local Best Buy. Good question though, as far as what, and if any brand is solely built in the US.

Here is a study by Gartner that shows comparisons for the 1st Quarter of 2009. It has both worldwide market share and US market share for about the first 5 or so manufacturers in each.

That thing is showing Acer as #3 on the worldwide list. I wonder if that is a compendum of all four of their brands ( Acer, Gateway, eMachines, & Packard Bell ). I don't think they market Packard Bell in the US, so it would be narrowed to three brands here.

Dunno. You could likely ask the same thing about HP with Compaq.
Good riddance PCWorld.

Yep. Good point. Could go for Dell/Alienware as well.

I suspect if you count the iPad (never mind iPhones and iPod touches, which are indeed more capable than many computers that are still running), Apple has them all beat. Just saying... ;-)

laptop manufacturers - (ODM's)top 2 Quanta and Compal who manufacture fro the OEM's Dell, Toshiba, Apple, Acer, HP and others. The OEM design some of those ODM manufactured laptops.

The largest notebook ODMs in the world are Quanta and Compal, whom together manufactures over 90% of the world’s notebooks on the market. And the rest of the ODMs are all based in Asia, centered around Taiwan.
These ODMs will manufacture the barebone systems (consisting of the mainly chassis/casing and motherboard). Then the big brands or OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) would get a hold of them to brand them, and install the final, yet, standardized components like the Hard Drive, Memory, Bluetooth, Optical Drive, etc. So no notebook is really made in the USA, only the final assembly of the simple and standard parts are… therefore, the next time you hear someone say that their notebook was made in the United States, you better correct them.

Also the Iphone, Ipad and Ipod are made by Foxconn.

Top selling Brands (OEM's) Worldwide by %


http://money.cnn.com...rtune/index.htm, which is from February 2009, suggests that the top selling laptop brands are:

HP 21.2%
Acer 16.5%
Dell 14%
Toshiba 9.6%
Lenovo 7.3%

Acer is big in Australia and are rather new to USA. One of the reason MSI and Asus have made a presence in the USA is because the brands are making it much more competitive between the ODM's which is resulting in less quality and the ODM are building better models under their brand names.
