PC shipments fall at fastest rate ever as businesses slam wallets shut

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV)



C shipments are plunging by record levels as enterprises spend less on devices and sweat assets for longer in the face of a worldwide economic slowdown.

Gartner says 68 million computers were sent into the channel in Q3, down 19.5 percent year-on-year in the steepest decline since the market watcher began crunching unit volumes in the mid-1990s.

This was the fourth straight quarter of year-on-year shrinkage, and “could mark a historic slowdown for the PC market,” said Mikako Kitagawa, director analyst.
