Lenovo tops worldwide PC market in flat quarter
Lenovo’s piece of the pie expands, Apple’s slides a bit.
The worldwide PC market might settle.
PC producers sent 67.2 million units in the second from last quarter of 2018, a 0.1 percent expansion from a similar period a year ago, as per starter numbers discharged Wednesday by Gartner, a statistical surveying firm. The level generally number comes following a second quarter in which shipments posted an unobtrusive increment of 1.4 percent, the first up quarter in six years.
While request from buyers stayed feeble, solid business deals floated the general market.
“The PC showcase kept on being driven by enduring corporate PC request, which was driven by Windows 10 PC equipment updates,” Mikako Kitagawa, key investigator at Gartner, said in an announcement. “We expect the Windows 10 update spin to proceed through 2020 and soon thereafter the redesign request will decrease.”
Lenovo clutched its crown with a piece of the pie of 23.6 percent, up from 21.4 percent in a similar quarter a year sooner. HP was No. 2 with 21.8 percent, trailed by Dell with 16 percent of the market.
While the main three figured out how to extend their piece of the pie, Apple and Acer saw decreases in their offers of the PC showcase. Apple snatched the No. 4 position with 7.3 percent, while No. 5 Acer took in 6.1 percent.
