Intel CEO Bullish on Netbook Sales, Optimistic About Laptop Sales
- 1 Comment
Intel CEO Paul Otellini acknowledges the growth of the netbook segment of the overall notebook market but says that, “while Atom and Netbooks are important growth drivers for us, our traditional notebook business remains one of the primary drivers of revenue growth and we expect that to continue in the future.” Otellini believes that both netbook and notebook sales will both continue to rise.
Otellini is also optimistic about sales of ultrathin laptops, relatively inexpensive alternatives that cost between $500 and $900 each and fall in the notebook category between netbooks and laptops. Various dual-core ultrathin laptops have already been released and much more will be released in time for the holiday season.
