Up is down in the PC market

Gartner and IDC have released their quarterly look at the PC market and they do not agree on whether sales gew or shrunk.  One thing they do agree on is that the market did not change all that much.  Gartner's 0.1% growth and IDC's 0.9% shinkage represent a few thousand machines at most, so saying the market is relatively unchanged seems fair.  Lenovo continues to hold the lead, though HP is close on their heels with Dell lagging behind.  You can see the individual numbers over at The Register.


"Gartner reports global PC sales of 67.2 million units for Q3 2018 showed a slim growth of 0.1 per cent over the same period in 2017. Meanwhile IDC said volumes of 67.4 million units is down 0.9 per cent year-on-year."
