PC sales dip 8.6 percent

Written by Fudzilla staff

Worst quarter since 2008

According to a new report from Gartner, the worldwide PC industry shrank 8.6 percent over the last quarter. It’s just more bad news in what has already turned out to be the worst year for the PC industry in history.

Worldwide shipments were just 80.3 million units in Q3, marking the worst quarter since the economic calamity of 2008. Lenovo still reigns supreme with a 17.6 percent market share, but HP is not far behind with a 17.1 percent share. Dell came in third with 11.6 percent of the market, while Acer and Asus seized 8.3 and 6.1.

Both Acer and Asus saw their market share drop by more than 22 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012. There’s some good news, too. Sales in the US were actually 3.5 percent higher than last year, but then again EMEA saw a massive 13.7 percent slide.
