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.

The PC is still making a lot of doe, but its good to see the gap closing in on them. Tablets and Android phones have giving the people more options. Apple is also doing much better then in past years.

I would guess that more and more people are also building their own PCs and don't order them pre-built. Nowadays there are more and more people that know how to build their own PC. But of course there are people out there that preffer smartphones and tablets over the PC, because they don't need the procesing power of a PC.
