[Graphic News] Global PC shipments slide amid pandemic supply problems

Global personal computer shipments dropped the most since 2013 in the first quarter, after the COVID-19 pandemic ensnared the Chinese supply-chain and created production problems for major hardware companies.

PC makers shipped 51.6 million laptops, desktops and workstations in the first three months of 2020, a 12 percent decrease compared with a year earlier, research firm Gartner said in a statement.

China-based Lenovo Group kept the No. 1 spot among PC vendors, with about 24.4 percent of the market. HP remained the second-largest player with about 21.5 percent share. Dell Technologies held third place. (Bloomberg)
