HP has ousted Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo from the top spot for sales in Asia in the first quarter of 2005. HP sales grew almost 29 per cent year-on-year and it made up 11.7 per cent of the total Asian PC market.

Lenovo managed growth of 20 per cent which pushed it into second place with an 11 per cent market share.

Lenovo is in the process of buying IBM's PC business which will push it back to the top of the charts - IBM made up just over six per cent of sales. In total the Asia-Pacific market bought 8.9 million PCs. IDC considers Japan separately.

Dell is in third place with an 8 per cent market share. The three months ended 31 March are a traditionally quiet time for PC sales thanks to New Year celebrations.®
