Notebook computers led PC shipments to the strongest quarter in more than a year said research firm IDC on Wednesday. Shipments in the U.S. were up 24% from a year earlier and World-wide PC shipments increased 15% from Q4 of 2008.
IDC saw pent-up demand for new computers in a reviving U.S. economy along with year over year comparisons with a much weaker quarter as the recession deepened in late 2008.
"The U.S. market exploded," said IDC analyst David Daoud
You'll remember it was Intel that predicted in June last year that 2009 Q4 growth would be anything but lackluster.
When all you read is gloom, turn here for a much different perspective.
