Global PC shipments fell 10.9% Y/Y in Q2 to 76M, estimates Gartner. That's nearly even with the 11.2% drop the firm estimated for Q1, and backs up recent analyst commentary (I, II). Gartner: "In emerging markets, inexpensive tablets have become the first computing device for many people." One bright spot: U.S. shipments fell only 1.4% Y/Y, and rose 8.5% Q/Q; Gartner thinks this was due to enterprise strength. EMEA shipments -16.8%, Asia-Pac -11.5%. Affected companies: MSFT, INTC, DELL, HPQ, STX, WDC, MU, AMD, NVDA. (IDC's Q1 data) (tablet forecast) Update: IDC estimates global Q2 shipments fell 11.4%, and U.S. shipments 1.9%.

    Certainly explains why MU is cutting so much of their PC DRAM capacity. (Shifting to NAND) Now, why is MU getting hammered? They're adjusting to keep supply slightly under demand.

    To the author, who rights your check??? Everywhere I look, I see more and more AMD products hitting the shelves. It would appear to me that AMD is regaining "Market Share".
