Global personal computer (PC) sales have fallen for the fifth quarter in a row, making it the "longest duration of decline" in history.
Worldwide PC shipments totalled 76 million units in the second quarter, a 10.9% drop from a year earlier, according to research firm Gartner.
PC sales have been hurt in recent years by the growing popularity of tablets.
I guess this is the answer to my previous thread. People start to prefer tablets instead of good old PC. However one of the main reasons is that the tablets are much cheaper and affordable, so it's not that the Personal Computers are getting old-fashioned and useless.
