IDC: Global PC shipments show worst drop since records began

Global PC shipments plunged 14 percent in the first three months of 2013, according to newly released figures from market research firm IDC.

It’s the steepest decline since 1994, when IDC began keeping records for the device.

Welcome to the Post-PC era.

And if you’re wondering, yes, even Apple saw PC shipment declines “as its own PCs also face competition from iPads.”
