Acer hit the number 2 spot on PC sales

Many people would never have thought it, but ACER have just stepped into the number 2 position in front of DELL with the total number of PC units shipped.

iSuppli research shows that Acer shipped 10.7 million units worldwide, which is 1.5 million more than they did last year at the same time. This knocked Dell into third place and they shipped 650,000 less units in Q3 2009 than they did in Q3 2008.

The leader in sales is HP who have almost 20% of the global market share – sitting at 19.901%, an ncredible percentage. Netbooks are a huge seller and Acer have claimed the top spot in netbook sales while Dell have struggled to make an impact in this marketplace. Acer hold 13.4% of the market and Dell drop to 12.9%. Lenovo and Toshiba account for 8.7% and 5.0% respectively.

“Acer’s rise to the number two rank in the global PC business reflects not only its strong performance in the notebook segment, but also the historic rise of Asia as a primary force in the computer industry, the third-quarter performances of Acer and Lenovo are just the latest development in the long-term rise of Asian manufacturers in the global PC market. The Asian manufacturers are a growing force in the global PC business due to their aggressive pricing along with their ability to quickly react and embrace new developments, such as the netbook PC.” said Matthew Wilkins principal analyst at iSuppli.
