The global economy is bad; we have heard that more often than any of us want to hear. The poor economy is hurting all sorts of businesses from the auto industry that is still on the verge of collapse despite the billions in loans from the government to the electronics industry that is seeing declining shipments.

The PC industry is one of the hardest hit segments of the computer industry and is seeing shipments decline for the first time in many years. New metrics from IDC show that poor sales of computers aren’t improving yet in 2009.

The latest metrics show that PC shipments are expected to drop 4.5% in 2009. Shipments dropped 1.9% in Q4 2008 alone, a quarter traditionally strong with holiday shopping. This is bad news for computer makers, but low shipments often mean low prices and consumers looking for a new computer can take advantage of that. Assuming there is money in their budget that is.
