Sony ΤΑΛΦΕ also plans to release a notebook on a usual, desktop Pentium 4 to be produced by Asustek.

So, the market easily adopted the trend of using desktop processors and chipsets in notebooks despite the availability of mobile variants. According to IDC IBM notebook sales volume reduced by 11.8% in the first quarter, making company´s share global market share 8.4%. Perhaps, that has happened because IBM´s rivals, namely Toshiba with its Satellite 1800 and Hewlett-Packard with Presario 1500, presented their desktop Pentium 4 notebooks. Besides, Dell plans to follow them as well, so the company should hurry to be in time for this market division.
