According to Deutsche Bank in a note sent out to clients, Apple’s combined iPad and MacBook / MacBook Pro market share puts them right ahead Asus, Toshiba, Dell, and Lenovo globally.

The sponsored link for Dell Adamo promises that we can “Discover the love story on 17/3” and sends the user to Dell’s Adamo splash page. Sure this could be another slick marketing ploy but it …
