Report: 2.1 million Chromebooks shipped in 2013

Research firm states Chromebook is performing well, has a bright future

Google's Chromebook are an interesting product line. Not only is it a family of low-cost, affordable notebooks but they're also the backbone of the search giant's Chrome operating system. And today ABI Research has released data showing that 2.1 million Chromebooks were shipped in 2013, the majority of them in the U.S.

North America actually made up around 89 percent of the shipment figures, according to ABI. What’s more is the firm also expects that by 2019 more than 11 million units will ship. That’s quite the prediction. Not to mention the bashful analysis of ultraportables running Windows 8, which saw a reported minimal growth during Q4 last year.

We’re still waiting for the Samsung Chromebook 2, which recently had its UK pricing and release details published.
