Worldwide PC Shipments Increase

Siliconrepublic is reporting that the worldwide sales numbers of PC’s has grown in the 3rd quarter of 2009.  Consumer laptops and netbooks have driven the growth numbers.  The “back to school” factor has probably played a big role.  College students have needed laptops for some time now and it’s becoming a necessary piece of equipment for school kids too.  There are predictions of good sales in 2010.  How reliable that is, I don’t know.  It’s hard to see much positivity when you live in a country on the precipice of an economic black hole and it’s managed by rejects from the Muppet show.  However, the news has me believing that much of the rest of the world is starting to recover.

I wonder how much Windows 7 has played a role in these new sales.  I think it will have had some importance in people’s decisions to purchase.  There is genuine excitement out there and I think the normal TV advertising that MS has done will raise consumer awareness.  When they asked their neighbourhood/family IT experts for opinions then the feedback was probably quite positive.
