Volgens IDC is de groei in de pc markt eerst klein, maar wordt die latere steviger. Vooral de portabel PC markt in Europa neemt behoorlijk toe.
“Western Europe – Adoption of portable PCs continues to fuel growth in Western Europe. Growth in portable PC shipments should top 20% in 2005 following over 30% growth in 2004 and nearly 40% in 2003. The consumer segment remains a key driver with portable shipments growth of more than 40% outpacing the commercial segment by roughly 5 points. Growth of desktop PC shipments is expected to slow to low single-digits from nearly 10% in 2004.”
