HP Tops Lenovo in Lackluster PC Market
HP is still the top dog in computer sales around the world, at least according to IDC. But those sales continue to plummet.
Released today, IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker pegged fourth-quarter global PC shipments at 89.8 million units, down 6.4 percent from the same quarter in 2011.
The drop was actually worse than IDC’s forecast of 4.4 percent and marked the first time the industry saw a year-on-year decline during the holiday season. For 2012 as a whole, PC shipments were down by 3.2 percent.
