PC Market Plummets

Worldwide PC shipments declined nearly 12 percent in the second quarter, with five of the top six biggest brands experiencing a drop in the number of PCs shipped, according to research firm IDC.

More than 66 million PC units were shipped worldwide in the quarter, down 11.8 percent from just less than 75 million units shipped in the same period last year.

IDC points to the upcoming launch of Windows 10 as the primary reason why retailers reduced their inventory of machines. Microsoft's much anticipated operating system is set to launch July 29.

IDC forecasts "low- to mid-single-digit declines in volume" for the remainder of the year as many consumers will opt for the free upgrade to Windows 10 rather than buying a new PC.
