As far back as a decade ago one could not even surmise that laptops would challenge regular desktops in terms of efficiency, ergonomics and convenience of usage. Indeed, those three aspects are the key foundations which add to the popularity of mobile computing.
Today laptops are a usual means of solving routine tasks, as individual so corporate ones. Just fancy documenting, sharing files, video conferencing, movie watching, and chatting with friends (all those things one can complete due to desktops) are nowadays enabled on the move!
Being a mere piece of hardware with multiple electronics onboard housed in a stylish case, portable computers are able to offer users the whole variety of facilities desktop PCs have, but with a huge privilege. With a laptop in hands you are no longer ‘fastened’ to your home/office space; instead, you can immerse into corporate/entertainment life at any place of your convenience.
Such astounding opportunities gave birth to the whole galaxy of designers who integrate ever newer technologies into their products. Currently, the most top-selling laptop vendors are Lenovo, HP, Acer, Apple, Asus, Dell, and Packard Bell.
It goes without saying that the demand for such user-friendly items pop up like mushrooms after a spring rain. Statistics show that in 2013 the volume of laptop shipments around the world made up 180.9 million units. Nonetheless, market sales experts predict that by 2017 this figure will rise to 196.6 million units, leaving behind desktop PCs with allegedly 123.11 million units shipments.
