Global sales of PCs slow down as more consumers opt for tablet computers or smartphones instead

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Gartner research on Wednesday reported that worldwide sales of personal computers slowed (PCs) in the recently ended quarter as people opted to spend money on smartphones or table computers. The number of personal computers shipped in the third quarter of this year tallied 91.8 million in a 3.2 increase from the same period in 2010. 'The consumer PC market continues to be weak,' said Gartner principal analyst Mikako Kitagawa. 'The popularity of non-PC devices, including media tablets such as the iPad and smartphones, took consumers' spending away from PCs,' she continued. Hewlett Packard (HP) continued to be the top computer maker, but China-based Lenovo was gaining ground and saw sales soar 25.2 per cent to take the second-place spot from Dell, according to Gartner.
