(MENAFN) Global shipments of PCs dropped notably in the third quarter, hurt by strong demand for smartphones and tablets, according to research firms Gartner Inc. and International Data Corporation (IDC), reported AP.

Gartner said that sales of PCs went down by 8.3 percent worldwide in the quarter, whereas IDC reported an 8.6 percent fall.

The two firms stated that China's Lenovo Group Ltd. was the only PC maker of the main 4 PC manufacturers, including Hewlett-Packard Co (HP), Dell Inc. and Acer Group, that posted a rise in third-quarter sales due to low prices.

Gartner said that for the first time, Lenovo's sales exceeded HP's, becoming the world's biggest seller of PCs, however, IDC kept HP in the top place, although by a narrow margin.

It is worth noting that Gartner Inc. is an information technology (IT) research and advisory firm providing technology related insight, and IDC is a market research, analysis and advisory company specializing in IT, telecommunications and consumer technology.
