PC Shipments To Fall 8.7% This Year

The professional guessers at IDC are once again predicting doom and gloom for the PC industry until at least 2017.

Research firm International Data Corp forecast a steeper fall in PC shipments in 2015 due to a large inventory of notebooks and the impact of a strong dollar, and said demand would not stabilize until 2017. IDC expects shipments to fall 8.7 percent this year, compared with its earlier forecast of a decline of 6.2 percent.
