Shipments of personal computers grew by 7.6 percent in the second quarter, outpacing estimates, boosted by attractive prices and the growing popularity of notebook PCs, according to a recent study.

Research firm IDC said shipment of PCs rose to 33.2 million, marking the fourth consecutive quarter of positive growth and highest rate since the end of 2000. IDC said industry unit shipment growth was better than the predicted 4.1 percent, due to "strong response to pricing initiatives in the U.S. and Europe, as well as the limited affect of the SARS outbreak on demand in Asia."

IDC cited strong unit growth in the period for leading PC vendors Dell Computer Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co., and International Business Machines Corp., respectively. Each increased market share, with Dell up to 17.8 percent from 14.9 percent a year ago and HP at 16.2 percent from 15.4 percent, IDC said. (Reuters)
