More on Gartner's PC data: The numbers back up recent positive datapoints (I, II) about PC demand. U.S. shipments fell 3.5% Y/Y, but beat Gartner's forecast for a 6.1% drop. Impressively (given Europe's woes), EMEA sales rose 6.7% on the back of strong business orders. Dell's (DELL) global share fell 40 bps Y/Y and 160 bps Q/Q. Apple's (AAPL) U.S. share was 10.6%, up 80 bps Y/Y but down 100 bps Q/Q (likely affected by seasonality). (PR)
