HP was second but recorded its fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year shipment growth.

MICROSOFT HAS ENTERED the top five PC vendors in the USA for the after managing to flog a reasonable amount of Surface devices.

The global PC market may be stabilizing. Although the firms use differing tracking methods, both show that Lenovo has regained its spot as the world's top-selling PC vendor for the third quarter. While Q3 wasn't quite able to keep the momentum going, shipments did increase, albeit by only 0.1 percent to 67.2 million units. "We expect the Windows 10 upgrade cycle to continue through 2020 at which point the upgrade demand will diminish".

Gartner had HP providing 4,531 devices; Dell as 3,831; global leader Lenovo as shipping 2,276 devices; and Apple accounting for 2,022 of the total 14,771 units shipped in the US.

Lenovo secured the top spot in the worldwide PC market with HP came second as the global PC shipments hit 67.2 million units in the third quarter of 2018 - a 0.1 per cent increase from the third quarter a year ago, research company Gartner said on Thursday.

While the top three managed to expand their market share, Apple and Acer saw declines in their shares of the PC market. With new Surface products announced last week and the $399 Surface Go proving popular, expect the Redmond firm to become a regular name in this list.

Overall PC shipments are also ticking along, according to Gartner's estimates, though growth is flat, which in the PC market isn't a bad thing. It says that shipments fell 0.9 percent last quarter, though that's still better than many expected.
