The Great PC Decline Isn’t As Bad As It Looks

Like we said yesterday (here) the so-called Great PC Decline isn't as bad as you’ve been told.

The reports, from industry-tracking stalwarts Gartner and IDC, show an overall drop in the global PC market of 8 and 10.4 percent, respectively. That sounds bad. And to be fair, it’s not actively good. Take a closer look at what the numbers actually say, though, and the context in which they say it, and you have a picture of an industry whose death has been greatly exaggerated.
