PC sales have been crashing. In fact PC sales have seen their worse decline in history, reports Smarthouse on Jan. 10, 2014. Although PC sales have gone from bad to worse, analysts say the market may have finally bottomed out. Demand for PCs has fallen by 7 percent internationally, as tablets continue to take a larger and larger share of the demand for traditional PC's like notebooks, laptops and desktops. However, Lenovo sales for PCs, along with the firm's other devices, have been hot.
The seventh consecutive quarter of shipment decline has been seen in Q4, with a 10 percent fall for the worst decline in PC history. Mikako Kitagawa, a Gartner analyst, has said, "Strong growth in tablets continued to negatively impact PC growth in emerging markets." The adoption of PCs in emerging markets is now anticipated to be slower as many consumers simply skip over them for tablets.
As the PC market has declined Lenovo has widened its lead in the PC market, reports PC World. Lenovo increased its lead over HP and Dell on an international basis during the fourth quarter of 2013. The Chinese PC maker was one of the few firms to show positive growth. As of this time Windows 8 an Windows 8.1 have
failed to curtail the flow of users turning to tablets and phones. If the market has really bottomed out for PCs, as analysts have said, future sales should be stronger. MandelMall.com offers Lenovo devices for sale online from Amazon.
