News PC Shipments Down 5.1% in Q1, 80.5 Million Units Were Shipped


PC sales had been on a steady decline for the better part of 10 years prior to covid-19. Now that the covid-19 surge is over and things are returning to mostly normal, I fully expect PC sales to resume their downward trend. The slump being worse than analysts' predictions doesn't surprise me as the slump has two years of slowing sales that would likely have continued were it not for covid-19 to catch up with. I bet the next few years' numbers are going to be much worse due to all of the out-of-cycle upgrades that got rushed over the last two years.
