Taiwan PC vendors see patchy March
Who's patchy March?
Overall, growth should be around 13%, compared to the original 13% to 14% forecast. For the first quarter as a whole, unit shipments will be down 7% to 8%, worse than the usual seasonal drop of 3% to 5%.
The news will not exactly cheer a PC industry that has been waiting for an upturn since 2000. However, Merrill Lynch adds that the market was not helped by high prices and shortages during the quarter.
