ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Worldwide PC shipments' growth is significantly below the 15.5 percent growth in 2005. Figures from Gartner Inc., note that mobile PC growth remains strong, but desktop shipments are expected to peak and actually decline. According to Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Garner, the impact will be especially dramatic in mature markets, where new desk-based penetration is also slowing and mobile-for-desk-based substitution is increasing. There is also a projection that the next two years will produce a turning point for the PC industry.
