Total notebook shipments for the UAE will hit 1.1 million units in 2008, a growth of nearly 93%, a senior Samsung official said. Madhav Narayan, General Manager of the IT Division at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said this figure reflects the massive lead that laptops have over desktops in the region, with four out of every five shipments being laptops. He added that Saudi Arabia accounted for at least 40% of IT spending in the Middle East region last year.
