HP and Lenovo vying for first place in PC market

Posted on Thursday, October 11 2012 @ 19:35:16 CEST by

EE Times reports preliminary PC marketshare data for Q3 2012 shows that HP and Lenovo are in dead heat for taking the lead in the PC market. Curiously, Gartner found that Lenovo is the number one in the third quarter with a marketshare of 15.7 percent, while HP stands at 15.5 percent, contrary to IDC which reports that HP continued to cling to a slight lead over Lenovo.
Gartner Inc. (Stamford, Conn.) said Wednesday (Oct. 10) that Lenovo took over as the market leader in PC shipments in the third quarter for the first time in the company's history, while International Data Corp. (IDC) reported that HP continued to cling to a slight lead over its Chinese rival. Both firms said the difference in the companies' market share during the quarter was within two-tenths of a percentage point, with each holding close to 16 percent of the market by units.

Both Gartner and IDC (Framingham, Mass.) said third quarter PC unit shipments declined by more than 8 percent compared with the third quarter of 2011. A third market research firm, IHS iSuppli, said Wednesday that PC sales are now projected to decline in 2012 compared to 2011, which would mark the first annual contraction in PC shipments since the dot com bust year of 2001.
