Worldwide PC shipments amounted to 82.2 million units in the fourth quarter of 2013, representing a year-on-year decline of 5.6 percent, slightly below the expected decrease of 6 percent, according to a report from International Data Corporation (IDC).

While commercial purchases helped to prevent a larger decline, the consumer side remained weak, the report shows.
