According to a new study, shipments of notebook computers (I think this includes the netbooks) overtake desktop sales in the third quarter of 2008 for the first time. The research firm iSupply released the results showing the notebook shipments shot up about 40 percent from the same period a year ago to 38.6 million, while desktop shipments fell about 1.3 percent to 38.5 million.

The numbers underscore a broader shift toward portable computing as more functions like e-mail and Web surfing migrate to mobile phones and the popularity of inexpensive "netbooks" used mainly for Internet access grows.

The study projects portable computers sales will grow by 15.2 percent in 2009, while expecting a 6.7 percent decline for desktops and servers using PC microprocessors.
