Conditions are improving in the PC market, according to research firm Gartner. For the first time since 2012, worldwide PC shipments generated quarterly growth with a 1.4 percent increase during the second quarter from a year earlier, Gartner reported. In the U.S. market, PCs also returned to growth -- of 1.7 percent -- following six quarters of declines in shipments. The growth was driven by strong sales in the government and education markets, while vendors including Lenovo and Dell put up the strongest growth numbers, according to Gartner.
