This year may be a weak one for PC sales, with Gartner predicting 4.4% growth in year-over-year global shipments to 368 million units. Next year may be stronger, Gartner says, as it forecasts shipment totals of 400 million units. "PC shipments will remain weak in 2012, as the PC market plays catch-up in bringing a new level of innovation that consumers want to see in devices they purchase," Gartner's Ranjit Atwal says.
