EMEA, which represented 11 per cent of total sales of Chromebooks in 2014, is the secondary focus for vendors with Western Europe as the primary target.

Acer sold more than 2 million units in 2014. Samsung held the number two position with 1.7 million units sold in 2014 and HP, a late entrant to the market, was ranked third, with one million units, thanks to its strong connection with education partners.
