sfcrazy writes: Chromebooks have been the best selling devices on for the last two years and now according to a study by ABI research an “estimated 2.1 million Chromebooks shipped in 2013 with nearly 89% of total shipments reaching North America.” The research showed that ” ultraportable segment, which is powered by the Windows 8 operating system and includes the versatile 2-in-1 configurations, saw minimal growth during 4Q 2013 even with the holiday season.” The bottom line is no one is buying Windows PCs anymore. More and more users are switching to smartphones and tablets and these users are picking Android, hurting Microsoft twice.
