Acer falls to world No. 3 PC vendor: Global PC market tracker

Acer Inc. slid a notch to become the world's third-largest personal computer vendor in the second quarter this year after Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell Inc., according to global PC market tracker International Data Corp. (IDC).
In a statement released by IDC Wednesday, Acer's PC shipments in the second quarter reached 10.24 million units, accounting for 12.6 percent of the world's total sales, compared with a market share of 13.6 percent recorded in the first quarter.
As a result, Dell took the No. 2 title in the past three months, grabbing a 13.0 percent market share in shipments. In the first quarter, Dell made up 13.3 percent of the global PC market, IDC said.
HP continued to rank the world's largest PC vendor, with Q2 shipments totaling 14.77 million units and 18.1 percent of global sales.
Lenovo ranked fourth with 10.2 percent of global PC shipments.
Acer's shipments in the second quarter were up 20.8 percent from a year earlier, while global PC shipment growth hit 22.4 percent, the IDC data showed.
Acer's growth was "slightly slower than the market - primarily a result of strong year-ago performance," IDC said in the statement.
"This was most evident in the United States and Japan - which saw the slowest growth, while Acer continued to make rapid gains in emerging markets," IDC added.
