The global PC market may be stabilizing.

Although the accurate numbers are not the same, Gartner and IDC delivered about the same results: Lenovo has HP breathing down its neck, and Dell tries to keep up with them in the third position.

Lenovo held on to its crown with a market share of 23.6 percent, up from 21.4 percent in the same quarter a year earlier. Gartner also disclosed that the PC shipment has seen an increase of 0.1% in Q3 2018. Acer and Apple trade places depending on the ranking (Apple is fifth according to Gartner and fourth according to IDC).

In the third quarter, Gartner reported nearly 19 million PC units shipped in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, which accounts for a 1.1 percent increase year-over-year.

By IDC's metric, overall PC devices shipped had reduced year over year, from 67,971 in the third quarter last year.

Air India flight hits airport wall before take-off
Nobody was hurt in the incident and the aircraft landed in Mumbai at 5:35 am after being in flight for four hours, officials said. Directorate General of Civil Aviation, which investigates aviation accidents and incidents, has been informed about the incident.

"We expect the Windows 10 upgrade cycle to continue through 2020, at which point the upgrade demand will diminish".

Notably, Dell and Apple were down, and the overall U.S. market was flat (down some 50,000 units) in Q3 2018, so in that context, Surface sales are doing fine. With Microsoft taking the fifth spot, Acer has now fallen from the top five PC makers list. Gartner said PC shipments in the region totalled 24.3 million units, which it reported as being a 0.3 percent increase from the third quarter of 2017.

HP continued to be the market leader in the U.S. with 30.7 per cent of the market.

The American Customer Sentiment Index highlights a bevy of moving parts in the PC industry, but overall Microsoft's frequent update approach to Windows is paying off.
