We did a survey on the best netbook-maker a couple of weeks back and I thought it’s time to share the results of that survey (there were over 1,000 votes sent in). Not surprisingly, HP came out the winner of the poll.
At 25% of the votes, HP took the top spot. It’s followed by Acer at 18%, then Asus at 14%. Dell, Sony and Toshiba are tied at 8% while MSI was surprisingly behind at 7% and Lenovo at 6%. The remaining 6% were shared by Neo, Red Fox, Gateway, Gigabyte, Qube, Astone and Minix.
With the HP Mini 2140 and the HP Mini 1100 (plus the Vivienne Tam Special Edition), HP deserves the spot. While the Acer, Asus and MSI crowd might not agree, the brand and lifestyle approach contributed to this. That doesn’t mean though that HP has more sales in the netbook market — that crown is still fought between Asus and Acer.
