Third Quarter Sales of HP and other computers up and Apple’s Mac down

Apple Balla reported on Wednesday that, according to the NASDAQ:AAPL, the sales of the Mac PCs were down by 11 percent, in comparison to the last year’s third quarter. IDC said that, from the top five PC vendors, Apple was the sole company out of the top five US personal computer vendors to show a decline. 

In her interview with the Marketwatch, Loren Loverde from IDC said that the general weakness of the PC market was offset by higher than envisioned demand. She mentioned that ‘Apple’s focus is oriented more on portables and consumer markets. In this quarter, growth was more evident in commercial.

The shipment of personal computers worldwide was eight percents lower during the same period. IDC was expecting ten percent drop, so the results were not as bad.

Lenovo sales went up by two percents, and Dell and HP both showed barely marginal growth.  The general trend for the sale of PCs in the US is expected to go down by about 25 percent by 2015.

The market seems to be moving away from PCs towards tablets, smartphones, and television and other appliances that are internet enabled. Dell chose to deal with the situation by focusing on enterprises.  HP has not been successful in preparing for this new world.  Apple seems to be in a better position, considering how popular iPad and iPhone are.  Interestingly, Microsoft and Google, might be in the best position, since both are focusing on new platforms for both consumers and enterprises.
