IDC has reported a record drop in PC sales in the last quarter of 2015, a fall of 10.6 percent over the same period of the year.
PC Sales Fell Down to a new Record – Reports
In detail, in the fourth quarter of 2015, PC shipments reached 71.9 million units, despite generous falls in the share, the market is led by Lenovo (in that quarter fell 4.5%), HP (10.1%) and Dell (5.7%). Fourthly, we have Asus which grew 0.8%, and fifth to Apple, which rose 2.8%. Other manufacturers add a drop of 21.9%.
At first glance, this might be a “catastrophe”, but following data is not reflecting the customized PCs, which are popular, and even cost less to upgrade in the future, instead of buying a new computer, so these numbers have only concern to manufacturers, which offer pre-assembled PCs of dubious quality.It’s likewise been a quiet year for new components, with no new generation of NVIDIA GPUs to provoke upgrades and the late entry of Skylake CPUs pushing purchase back. What’s more, regardless, PC gamers are inclined to parts over entire PCs.
