Dell Losing PC Marketshare

Dell Losing PC Marketshare

by , 7:40 AM EDT, October 19th, 2006

Dell has long been considered the top computer manufacturer in terms of units shipped, but lately has been losing ground to companies like Apple and HP. BusinessWeek reports that for the first time in three years, HP shipped more computers than Dell.

HP managed to outsell Dell enough last quarter to grab 16.3 percent of the personal computer market, beating out Dell's 16.1 percent. Apple showed a 30 percent increase in units shipped, and managed to end the quarter with 6 percent of the U.S. market.

This isn't the first time this year Dell's numbers have dropped below other computer manufacturers. In January, Apple Computer's market cap jumped up over Dell's.
