Halo effect

Hot on the heels of Gartner, rival market researcher IDC has also released its Q3 global PC market figures.

Growth was also lower than forecast, but there is some variation from the Gartner ones - especially regarding Acer - so we thought we'd give you the opportunity to compare and contrast. One thing they both agree on is that Apple has grabbed a big chunk of market share in the US.

"Despite a sluggish start, the quarter ended with a good rally in September which could be a good prelude for what is ahead," said Jay Chou, research analyst at IDC. "Lower PC component costs, budding excitement around new media-centric form factors and continued business buying should still make for a competitive holiday season."

"Apple's influence on the PC market continues to grow, particularly in the U.S., as the company's iPad has had some negative impact on the mininotebook market. But, the halo effect of the device also helped propel Mac sales and moved the company into the number three position in the U.S. market," said Bob O'Donnell, IDC VP for clients and displays.
