Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Apple was as the fourth-largest notebook vendor globally, behind Dell, HP, and Lenovo.

According to a new report by market intelligence firm Strategy Analytics, with remote and hybrid work options and e-learning continuing worldwide, demand for Notebook PCs is at its highest, driving 81 per cent (year-on-year) shipment growth. 

Work-from-home demand and the notebook PC upgrade cycle were the main driving factors for commercial demand, while the consumer segment contributed with strong e-learning and gaming activity from home in the first quarter.

All of this occurred despite supply chain shortages, meaning that there is still pent-up demand going forward in 2021, the report mentioned.

“Chromebooks continued to dominate the education sector as primary education sector demand is still high in developed markets. The SMB market is also responding well to the cost competitiveness and manageability of the Chrome ecosystem,” said industry analyst Chirag Upadhyay.

The emerging hybrid work pattern as well as the continuing need for learn-from-home devices added to consumer upgrade sales, making Q1 2021 the strongest first quarter after many years.
