Analyst Expect PC Shipments To Decline Through 2018

Analyst predict doom and gloom for the foreseeable future. Then again, professional guessers ALWAYS predict doom and gloom. wink

Worldwide PC shipments fell by -9.8% in 2013, slightly better than a projected decline of -10.1%, but still the most severe contraction on record, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. Fourth quarter results were slightly better than expected, but the outlook for emerging markets has deteriorated as competition from other devices and economic pressures mount.
