PC Shipments Continued Their Downward Spiral In 2015

Another doom and gloom article that goes into great detail explaining how the PC is dying. For a little perspective on this "downward spiral," fourth quarter 2015 PC shipments were 75.7 million units, compared to 80.4 million in 2010 and 50.3 million in 2005.

Personal computers wheezed their way to the end of 2015, even as Apple managed to gain ground. Buffeted by consumer infatuation with tablets and phones, worldwide shipments of PCs continued spiraling lower in the final three months of 2015, according to research firms IDC and Gartner. Consumer interest in PCs was so weak, shipments for the year fell to the lowest point since 2008, according to IDC.
