Dell Marketshare Tumbles
The once-dominant PC maker Dell is growing far more slowly than many rival PC makers and is taking a dive in marketshare as a result, according to a new study from iSuppli. The research group found that the company's shipping numbers grew just 1.5 percent year over year; this resulted in a drop of its command of PCs from 16.3 to 14.6 percent of the world's share. HP in turn jumped by almost 16 percent to take the lead with 19.1 percent of all PCs sold. Lenovo, Acer, and Toshiba rounded out top five, though Acer is expected to push its share upwards after it finishes its takeover of Gateway.
