According to unnamed sources speaking with the Digitimes, Google’s Chromebook sales have reportedly been worse than Surface sales coming in at 500,000 units, which gives Chrome OS a little less than a grueling 1% share of the notebook market.

The unnamed source said that Chromebooks could struggle gaining any ground against Windows-based notebooks for at least two years because Google “will still need some time to integrate” Chrome and Android in order to broaden the Chromebooks’ appeal for customers.

These are rumors and could possibly change after Google’s I/O event in May where the search giant usually unveils its big plans for the year. With the Chromebook Pixel being “for what’s next”, Chrome OS could have a big part to play in Google’s I/O announcements.
