Q3 2011 PC Shipment Numbers

We don’t have a complete picture but one thing is clear, in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and APEJ (Asia/Pacific Excluding Japan), Apple is not in the top five OEMs of notebooks and desktops. IDC shows APEJ grew shipments 13% compared with Q3 2010 and EMEA shrunk them 3.8%. At the same time and in the same regions, ARMed tablets and smartphone shipments are growing at huge rates of the order of 100% per annum.

Another interesting feature is that in both these regions, Lenovo had growth of around 30% while HP is stalled. While they fight it out, the crowd of onlookers will go buy Android/Linux on ARM.
