Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tt95vt/worldwide) has announced the addition of the "Worldwide Notebook PC Development Trends in the Post-PC Era" report to their offering.

The global notebook PC industry's shipment growth is anticipated to have witnessed a year-on-year decline for the first time in 2012, mainly due to the global economic uncertainties and the increasing replacement effect of tablets.
