Apple has strengthened itself in the laptop market byclimbing to seventh place, up from eighth a year ago.

This news means Apple has overtaken the likes of Sony,which now languishes in ninth place.

Number crunching

For the first quarter of 2008, HP is the number one brandwith 20.8 per cent market share, with Dell not far behind at 15.1 per cent. Thisis quite significant as Dell was overtaken by Acer at the tail end of lastyear.

Apple moving up a notch sees them take a 4.6 per cent sharewith the budget conscious ASUS right behind with 4.3 per cent of the market.
