Worldwide Traditional PC Market Shares, 1Q17: First Quarterly Growth in Five Years
This IDC study presents vendor share data for the traditional PC market in 1Q17. "The traditional PC market returned its first positive growth rate since 1Q12," stated research director at IDC's Devices and Displays group, Linn Huang. "Yet, IDC remains cautiously optimistic. Inventory-related drivers could negatively impact the subsequent quarters, and strong product refreshes in the detachables category expected later in the year could further impact the notebook market for the remainder of 2017."
