The embattled PC market has sunk to its lowest point in a decade, as sales fell for the sixth consecutive quarter.
PC shipments were down 9.6 per cent year-on-year during the first three months of 2016, translating to just 64.8 million units, the first time the shipment volume has fallen below 65 million since 2007 according to preliminary data from Gartner. During the same period in 2013, around 76.3 million PCs were sold.
