Lenovo is Now the World's Third Largest PC Manufacturer

By - Source: IHS | B 23 comments

Lenovo has surpassed Acer as the world's second largest PC OEM in the second quarter of this year.

According to IHS, Lenovo sold 10.2 million PCs in Q2, up 26 percent from 8.2 million in Q1 and up 23 percent from 8.3 million in Q2 of last year. Acer suffered from channel oversupply and weaker demand and saw its shipments decline by 20 percent year-over year from 11.1 million Q2 2010 to 8.9 million in the second quarter of this year. Acer appears to be especially affected by the decline of the netbook.

Dell came in second with 3.8 percent annual growth to 11.1 million units in Q2, while HP was in the lead with 15.4 million units, up 2.8 percent from last year. Asus was ranked fifth for the first time with 4.6 million shipped PCs.

IHS also mentioned Apple, which sold 3.8 million PCs, up from 3.3 million last year. “Apple’s growth is attributable to its products being highly desirable and continuing to appeal to consumers, despite the weaker consumer demand environment,” said IHS's Matthew Wilkins. “The company’s performance was so strong that Apple now is less than 1 percentage point away from having sufficient market share to enter the Top 5 rankings.” Apple was ranked 7th.

Samsung in position 8 posted the highest growth of any Top-10 PC brand in the second quarter, with its shipments rising by 31.3 percent to 3.1 million units, up from 2.4 million during the same period in 2010.

    Ah, China. Thank you tree hugger over the top government regulations, ultra high corporate taxes and greedy unions.
    Even Russia is far enough to it's people to have a flat tax of 13%, the US FEDS love a super complex tax code so they can manipulate the serfs.

    Acer lost its ranking as 3rd because of their bad sales. Lenovo took its place.

    Like most such "articles", there's really no meat here. Show us the stats. We can do our "second" and "third" placements on our own, Doug.

    netbook, laptop, etc. are NOT PCs! Any device where the keyboard is basically attached to the monitor is NOT a PC. A PC is that little box next to or under your desk with all the wires coming out of it.

    Lenovo is good, but their IdeaPad series suck big-time. ThinkPad, however, is great, though a bit overpriced at times.

    Acer does not deserve to have its place in this world because of the crappy system and lousy support. ACER is ALL COMPLETE EVERYTHING REDUCED

    Actually a PC is a personal computer, regardless of it's form.

    What about those AIO PCs, huh? (AIO: All-In-One). The motherboard, PSU, HDD optical drive, etc., are attached to the monitor. Those devices that have the keyboard attached to the monitor also run PC software and are very similar (internally) to a PC. In fact, you could call those Portable Personal Computers (PPCs).

    Acer just sells too much crap. They flood their markets with PC's with one feature that is good such as a better CPU or better graphics then makes up for that by having poor chassis,lousy keyboard/Touchpad or generally cheap hardware and support.

    I had no idea Lenovo had become such a large company.

    Although, I'm happy that I went with my Acer. It's well made for a laptop costing $650.
