PC shipments will drop by 6.1% this year, IDC predicts, and it foresees little to no growth for shipments over the next four years. Shipments were down 9.8% last year. "Emerging markets used to be a core driver of the PC market, as rising penetration among large populations boosted overall growth. At the moment, however, we're seeing emerging regions more affected by a weak economic environment as well as significant shifts in technology buying priorities," IDC's Loren Loverde said.
