How Do You Categorize Notebooks?
The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. Our purpose here is to define the notebook market segments, describe what the general characteristics of each segment are, and to give users an idea of what features they can expect for each segment.
super-low-price PC, epitomized by eMachines offerings. The eMachines model, however, is merely a pricing difference, not a technological one. This consigns it to the idea of gaining desktop market share through reduced prices/margins, which is (to us) not very interesting. This brings us to the notebook/portable market. If handheld devices (Palm, Pocket PC, smart cell phones) are included, then this market has arguably the broadest range of product features. In this note, we will focus solely on the
