HP’s Mini-Note hit the market this spring, and a new report indicates that demand for it is growing dramatically.
HP Taiwan told the Chinese-language newspaper Apply Daily that worldwide sales have increased 50% each month since the debut. The heavyest demand is coming in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
No reason was given for this increase, but it could be releated to consumers’ growing interest in the sub-notebook category.
