IDC's preliminary results show that the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) PC market grew 19% sequentially and 8% year-on-year in 2Q09 to reach 19.9 million units. This was 6% ahead of forecasts, and year-on-year growth was finally positive after two quarters of declines.

Portable PCs were once again a major driver, particularly in Southeast Asia, said IDC. And fortunately, swine flu did not turn out to be the showstopper that SARS was. Lenovo remained the region's leader as it emerged from the Lunar New Year slowdown in the previous quarter, although rival HP posted a very impressive performance in the region as well.

Kathy Sin, Research Manager of Asia/Pacific Personal Systems Research at IDC, said, "The PC market in Hong Kong generally met expectations. Questions still remain about the outlook for the local economy. However, if global economic conditions pick up next year, Hong Kong should move along with it."
