Dell may lose more ground to HP, Acer

By Justin Mann on
The notebook market isn't being friendly to Dell this year, and most notably so in the last quarter. Recent figures show Dell slipping, and the computer giant is expected to lose even more ground to rivals HP and Acer -- particularly in the notebook segment. Sitting at number three for worldwide laptop sales, Dell expects to move around 5-6 million units in the third quarter of this year. This compares to HP and Acer, who are both anticipating nearly double that.

Dell's loss isn't coming as a surprise. Last month Acer managed to squeeze by Dell in worldwide notebook shipments, and has even grown to challenge HP. Earlier this year, Acer took pride in the fact that their sales were threatening Dell's position as the number two PC vendor worldwide. Some reports have suggested that Dell is suffering due to a lack of enterprise demand. What is their game plan to recover lost ground?
