Dell top PC vendor in 2006, but HP is coming closer

Posted on Thursday, March 08 2007 @ 00:05:36 CET by

iSuppli says that Dell sold more computers than any other vendors last year, but HP racked up impressive market share gains that allowed it to reach the top ranking in the second half of the year:
HP in the fourth quarter of 2006 retained the leadership position it attained during the previous quarter, shipping 11.6 million PCs, up 21.1% from 9.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. This rise was more than three times higher than the overall PC industry's average of 6.3% growth during the same period.

In contrast, Dell shipped only 9.6 million PCs in the fourth quarter of 2006, down 8.6% from 10.5 million during the same period in 2005. Dell was the only of the top-5 PC vendors to report a decline in fourth-quarter shipments-both sequentially and on year.

"HP's resurgence was the most remarkable event in the PC industry in 2006," said Matthew Wilkins, iSuppli's principal analyst for compute platforms. "The company clearly has momentum on its side. Furthermore, with Dell adjusting to its senior management changes-including the return of Michael Dell as the company's chief operating officer-HP is likely to continue to make gains."
The third biggest PC shipper is Lenovo, followed by Acer and Toshiba.
