Gartner, which pegged Q2 PC shipment growth at a mere 2.3%, is cutting its full-year growth forecast to 3.8%, from a prior 9.3%. The firm cites weak U.S. and European demand (especially among consumers), including signs of "disappointing" back-to-school sales. Interestingly, Gartner still expects 2012 growth to come in at a healthy 10.9%.
