Timothy Prickett Morgan writes about the results from the second quarter regarding PC shipments.

“IDC said … that second quarter PC shipments came in slightly ahead of its projections, as they did in the first quarter as well, with shipments down only 3.1 per cent to 66.3 million units. IDC had been expecting a 6.3 unit shipment decline in the quarter. As in past quarters, notebook and netbook PCs are driving volumes as shoppers are looking for more portable and less expensive PCs.”
