PC Shipments Up Nearly 2% in 1st Quarter

PC shipments are up by almost 2% worldwide. It would seem that all those predictions of tablets "killing" the desktop computer and the Chinese were going to buy more PCs didn't really pan out. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Research firm Gartner says the number of personal computers shipped worldwide rose more than expected in the first quarter but with disappointing results in some parts of the world. Gartner said Wednesday that the total number of shipments increased 1.9 percent year-over-year to 89 million units. That's above its earlier expectations of 1.2 percent.
