The Dell laptop computers were among the best-selling desktop PCs in the world in 2018, according to the Computer Manufacturers Association.
The group, the nation’s largest industry trade group, said the computers were used by about 11.4 million people, including 1.5 million in the U.S. and 3.5 of every 4 people in Canada.
That was the best year-over-year growth rate in more than 20 years.
The industry group said the Dell computers helped drive a surge in sales of $7.5 billion in 2018.
Dell said the increase was driven by its “unmatched global performance” and the laptop’s “immense flexibility.”
