Analyst Says PC Industry Nearing Bottom

According to analysts, The PC industry is nearing the bottom and the downturn in PC sales could actually slow this quarter.

Gartner analyst Tracy Tsai predicts the global slide in personal-computer shipments will slow in the fourth quarter to a 3% year-on-year drop, compared with an 8.6% fall in the third quarter. PC makers have been battling sluggish sales since tablet computers and mobile devices burst onto the scene and stole away consumers. Next year, however, world-wide shipments should be roughly flat compared with this year, Ms. Tsai said.
