Acer is still dominating the netbook market, with a 30.5 percent market share, and has outsold closest rival Asus by almost double. Overall, however, Hewlett Packard is the top player in the laptop market, with a 24.1 percent share and 7.3 million units shipped.

About 45 percent of all netbooks were sold in EMEA, while North America trailed with 26 percent. Analysts attribute the success in Europe to telecom subsidies and payment plans.
