Lenovo, Dell Biggest Gainers In U.S. PC Market For Q2
Lenovo Returns To Sales Growth, Gains Market Share
After a number of quarters of falling sales in the U.S. PC market, Lenovo enjoyed a strong second quarter and outgrew Dell and HP with a jump in unit sales of 8.2 percent year over year, according to Gartner. That delivered Lenovo an increase in market share in the U.S. PC market to 14.9 percent, compared with14 percent a year earlier, landing the company in the No. 3 spot in the market.
The results followed new measures rolled out by Lenovo in recent months following a changeover in leadership, with the intent of spurring growth in the North American PC market. Matt Zielinski, Lenovo's North America president for its PC and smart devices division, had told CRN in May that the company is targeting the addition of between one-quarter and one-half of a percentage point of market share per quarter for the foreseeable future.
