According to Gartner latest report, PC shipments falls 10.9% to 76 million units in second quarter 2013 with bearing a longest decline yet for the fifth consecutive quarter. The drop was the result of all five major PC vendors contribution although Lenovo and Dell stand still and even increase their shipment numbers in US reportedly.

“We are seeing the PC market reduction directly tied to the shrinking installed base of PCs, as inexpensive tablets displace the low-end machines used primarily for consumption in mature and developed markets,” Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner, said in a statement. “In emerging markets, inexpensive tablets have become the first computing device for many people, who at best are deferring the purchase of a PC. This is also accounting for the collapse of the mini notebook market.”
