HP Gains On Lenovo In PC Shipments; Apple Slips
#Hp Inc. (HPQ) narrowed the gap with No. 1 PC vendor Lenovo in the second quarter, research firm IDC said late Monday. HP increased its personal computer shipments by 5.1% year over year in Q2 to 12.96 million units. It increased its worldwide PC market share to 20.8% from 18.9% a year earlier. China-based #Lenovo continues to lead, but its PC shipments fell 2.3% to 13.2 million units. But since Lenovo’s decline was less than the overall market decline, its market share actually increased to 21.2% from 20.7%, IDC said.
