Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

PC shipments in Western Europe fell 11 per cent in Q3. according to Gartner Dataquest.

Last month, IDC reported a Q3 decline of 12 per cent for the same region.

Leading international brands were burned most badly, with Compaq, IBM and Fujitsu Siemens all reporting double digit declines for the quarter. Dell was the only company to buck the trend, gaining 5.6 per cent.

PC shipments for the entire EMEA region showed a six per cent year on year decline against the same period last year.

According to Gartner most of the leading brands losing market share, the difficult conditions have favoured some of the smaller PC vendors. Analyst Brian Gammage commented that, "Good logistics and the ability to respond quickly are currently the keys to success in the PC market, which means you don't need to be big to win business." ®
