Global PC shipments fell 9.6% in Q1 2016
Gartner says that this is the first quarter to see fewer than 65 million units since 2007. In other words, Q1 2016 PC shipments were almost at a decade-low.
The top five vendors were Lenovo, HP, Dell, Asus, and Apple. As you can see in the chart below, Gartner found that Apple and Asus were the only companies among the top vendors that experienced an increase in PC shipments.
Leaders Lenovo and HP saw particularly poor results, though the declines weren’t quite in the double digits.
IDC, meanwhile, estimated worldwide PC shipments dropped 11.5 percent to 60.6 million units in the first quarter. The top five vendors in IDC’s results were Lenovo, HP, Dell, Apple, and Asus.
IDC agrees with Gartner that Lenovo, HP, and Dell were down, but it also found that Apple and Asus declined as well. ■
