PC Market Facing "Longest Duration Of Decline" In Its History

The PC market is experiencing the longest decline in its history.

According to research firmGartner, PC shipments have plummeted to 76 million worldwide in the second quarter of 2013. This makes for a 10.9% drop when compared to sales numbers from last year.Not only that, but now we've seen a total of five consecutive quarters of decline in PC sales, making it"the longest duration of decline in the PC market’s history."
