Sales for windows notebook dipped during holidays - NDP

Northern, WI 1/12/2013 (avauncer) - As reported by the NPD Group, the New Year’s holiday season saw customers shopping electronic appliances of all sorts rather than computers. The trend of restricted computer speeding was the sole catalyst that triggered a sharp decline in the demand for Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT)’s Windows Notebooks the report concluded.

The Port Washington – New York based research firm - reported that the unit sales of Windows Notebook fell by 11% Despite the fact that the device costs to the lower side of $500. There was also a decline of 16% in its revenues. The NPD also expressed that even the much hyped launch of the Windows-8 was not able to boost the demands for the company’s  Notebooks. The Notebook sales were declining throughout the year 2012 and “the new operating system did little” to improve the situation, NPD’s research report read.
