PC market posts strongest growth in 6 years in Q2

Friday 13 July 2018 | 08:44 CET | News
Shipments of traditional PCs (desktop, notebook and workstation) came to 62.3 million units in the second quarter, up 2.7 percent year on year and the strongest growth in more than six years, according to preliminary data from IDC. Although helped to some extent by a weak second quarter in 2017, the report said shipments were driven above all by stronger business demand, with the top three companies reaping benefits across both desktop and notebook, as well as improved supply and prices of graphic cards.
