Netbooks, once expected to fade away in favor of desktops and notebooks, are still enjoying strong sales. Shipments are forecast to hit 60 million in 2010, and that figure is now expected to double by 2013, according to a report by ABI Research. Netbook sales are showing no signs of waning, ABI Research announced July 22, sharing findings from a new study. Nearly 60 million netbooks—lightweight PCs with prices that are generally under $400 and enough power for social networking activities and Web surfing— are expected to ship worldwide by the end of 2010, and that figure is likely to double by 2013, the research company said.
