A new report quotes a Samsung spokesperson as saying the company plans to stop selling its laptops, which include its Windows notebooks, in the European markets.
PC Advisor quotes a Samsung spokesperson as saying:
We quickly adapt to market needs and demands. In Europe, we will be discontinuing sales of laptops including Chromebooks for now. This is specific to the region – and is not necessarily reflective of conditions in other markets. We will continue to thoroughly evaluate market conditions and will make further adjustments to maintain our competitiveness in emerging PC categories.
Samsung has released some impressive Windows notebooks in the past. At CES 2014 in January, the company revealed the ATIV Book 9, which had up to 14 hours of battery life (closer to 9 hours, upon release) in its large 15.6-inch case. What do you think about Samsung getting out of the notebook business in Europe?
