IDC: There's Hope on the PC Horizon


IDC last week reported worldwide PC shipments totaled nearly 72 million units in the fourth quarter of 2015, down 10.6 percent year over year — the largest YoY decline ever. While shipments in Q4 were slightly higher than in Q3, 2015 was the first year since 2008 that fewer than 300 million PCs were shipped. Longer PC life cycles, competition from mobile phones and tablets, economic issues, and social disruptions in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific contributed to the poor results.
