Lenovo dominates the PC market

Apple held onto fourth place in the world PC market

HP was second but recorded its fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year shipment growth.

Lenovo has once again claimed the number one spot in PCs shipped globally, with both IDC and Gartner listing the Chinese multinational as shipping around 16,000 desktops, notebooks, and workstations in the third quarter of 2018.

"The PC market continued to be driven by steady corporate PC demand, which was driven by Windows 10 PC hardware upgrades". The same source mentioned a figure of 24.3 million for the Asia-Pacific region (excluding Japan).

Microsoft became one of the top five PC makers in the U.S. for the first time owing to its Surface devices. It expects upgrade demand to continue until 2020.

Number crunchers at Gartner have added up some numbers and divided them by their shoe size and calculated that the top five PC vendors in the U.S. now include Microsoft.

Gartner had HP providing 4,531 devices; Dell as 3,831; global leader Lenovo as shipping 2,276 devices; and Apple accounting for 2,022 of the total 14,771 units shipped in the US.

While the top three managed to expand their market share, Apple and Acer saw declines in their shares of the PC market. What's interesting is that in the USA breakdown, we see that Microsoft has made its first appearance in the top five, knocking Acer off the table.

It's also credence to how good the Surface devices Microsoft makes are; we were suitably impressed with the Surface Pro, Surface Laptop, and even the cheaper Surface Go. It says that shipments fell 0.9 percent last quarter, though that's still better than many expected. The company pushed down to sixth place was Acer.
