Global PC shipments rose 3.2% Y/Y in Q3, according to Gartner. That's better than the 2.3% growth the firm estimated for Q2, but below its 5.1% forecast, as back-to-school sales proved disappointing. HPQ saw its share rise 0.4 points Y/Y to 17.7%, while DELL's fell 0.6 points, to 11.6%. AAPL's U.S. share grew 2.1 points, to 12.9%.
