Acer Passes Dell as Number 2 PC Maker

Posted by at 9:34 am on December 4, 2009

A new iSuppli study has Acer officially passing by Dell to become the world’s second-largest PC builder. The Taiwan firm’s computer sales jumped 16.6% year-over-year in the summer to nearly 10.74 million PCs, or a 13.4% share of the entire market. Meanwhile, Dell actually dropped 5.9 percent to ship 10.34 million PCs, or 12.9 percent of the whole group.

Mainland China’s Lenovo was the only other company in the top five to see similar growth and actually jumped by a higher 17.2%, but its much lower shipment of 6.94 million PCs kept it in fourth place. First-place HP and fifth-place Toshiba were in positive territory with growth of 7% and 9.7% respectively to ship 15.9 million and 4.02 million computers each.

The results don’t mention major vendors outside of the top five, such as Apple and ASUS.
