Google’s Chromebook has rightly earned a place in business and education with its secure and maintenance-free operation. Yet, there is often still a need to run Windows and Windows-based applications. Parallels has brought its virtualisation technology to Chrome OS allowing you to run Windows apps natively.
Tech analyst firm Canalys has issued what on the surface appears to be a contradictory report about the global PC market on Monday, claiming that it fell by 2% year-on-year for the third quarter of 2021, after it released a report in October claiming a 5% rise.
New Zealand has experienced its strongest year of PC shipments in 2020, with the technology analyst firm IDC putting it down to demand for devices to be used in education and switching from desktops to notebooks. But the company predicted that 2021 shipments would drop by 5.5%.
The global PC market is forecast to grow by 8% in 2021, the technology analyst firm Canalys says, adding that this will be after a stellar year in 2020.
The total global PC market — including tablets — grew for the second straight quarter, with shipments of 124.5 million units in the third quarter of 2020, the technology analyst firm Canalys says, adding that this meant a 23% rise year-on-year.

Google has cut a deal with the New Zealand Ministry of Education to supply its Chrome notebooks to all students of state and state-integrated schools in the country.
Fujitsu has teamed up with Google to deliver an enterprise-grade managed service offering in Australia and New Zealand that it says leverages the flexibility, simplicity and security of the Chrome platform (Chromebooks and Chromeboxes).
