Double-digit growth in PC shipments



In its latest research, Gartner has said it expects worldwide PC unit shipments to grow 12.7 per cent to $206.6 million in 2005 although revenue is forecast to grow by just 0.5 per cent to $202.7 billion.
In 2006, Gartner expects PC shipments to grow by 8.7 per cent but PC revenues to decline by 0.4 per cent. The company attributes the latter to continuing declines in average selling prices.
