Netbooks Drive #Acer to #2 PC Vendor in World - Reviews by PC Magazine

Netbooks Drive Acer to #2 PC Vendor in World - Reviews by PC Magazine: "A whopping 26 percent increase in unit sales pushed Acer ahead of Dell in global PC sales, with Acer achieving the runner-up position for the first time.

IDC released its third-quarter PC estimates on Wednesday, placing Taiwan's Acer in the number-two spot. Dell suffered an 8.4 percent drop in unit shipments, IDC reported, the only vendor in the top five worldwide to record lower overall unit sales on a worldwide basis. Dell's U.S shipments declined as well.

Within the United States, however, Dell handily maintained its position as the second-ranked PC vendor. HP retained the top spot, in both worldwide and U.S. shipments, but just edged out Dell within the U.S.

Overall, global PC shipments rose by 2.3 percent to 78.1 million units, in what IDC called 'an important continuation of recovery from year-on-year declines of 6.8 percent in the first quarter and 2.4 percent in the second quarter.'"
