PC market slows

Stuff.co.nz reports today that sales of the PC worldwide have considerably slowed due to the emergence of tablet devices such as the iPad and technology developments in game consoles. Especially mini notebooks, which seem to have been hit the hardest with competition from the tablets.

Growth in PC sales worldwide was forecast at 4.8 percent but instead grew by only 3.1 percent.

Winners in the stats are Lenovo and Toshiba, which posted the most improved growth in the fourth quarter of 2010. Lenovo’s worldwide market share grew 21.4 per cent while Toshiba’s was up 12.1 per cent.
