Microsoft back as a top PC vendor

  • Apple held onto fourth place in the world PC market

While Microsoft has managed to enter the top five PC makers in the USA, thanks to the new Surface devices, the company still needs to work hand to maintain and move up the ladder.

Gartner puts the top six worldwide vendors as: Lenovo, HP Inc, Dell, Apple, Acer, and Asus.

Lenovo secured the top spot in the worldwide PC market with HP came second as the global PC shipments hit 67.2 million units in the third quarter of 2018 - a 0.1 per cent increase from the third quarter past year, research company Gartner said on Thursday. With new Surface products announced last week and the $399 Surface Go proving popular, expect the Redmond firm to become a regular name in this list. And we expect we'll give the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 an approving nod, though we need to have some time with them first.

There's some big news in the latest round of PC shipment numbers that are coming from Gartner and IDC. For example, the leader of the third quarter, namely Lenovo, only sold around 16,000 PC devices, but this was enough for a market share of 24 percent.

The firm writes that enterprise demand driven by the Windows 10 upgrade cycle is steadily pushing the market in the right direction.

"The PC market continued to be driven by steady corporate PC demand, which was driven by Windows 10 PC hardware upgrades", Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner, said in a statement.

PC sales were flat in the quarter ending September 31.

By IDC's metric, overall PC devices shipped had reduced year over year, from 67,971 in the third quarter last year. "In the meantime, AMD will pick up the part of the market where Intel can not supply CPUs".
