The Chinese Are Buying PCs In Big NumbersApril 20, 2012 1:23 am
We had spotted some PC sales statistics – if everyone in the US is buying tablets, who is buying PCs? We spotted this today:
“If you were wondering where all the PC growth was, look East, young person. IHS, formerly iSuppli, expects that desktop sales will rise 8% and Ultrabook sales will take up 15 to 20 percent of notebook shipments. Windows 8 and Intel’s Ivy Bridge are to be driving factors in PC growth this year.
In comparison, IDC found that 2011 PC shipments shrank in Europe and the United States by 9%.
Lenovo is still the number one PC maker in China, followed by Acer. HP has declined to fifth place with 5.3% market share.”
