Only three brands saw growth in a disappointing quarter for PC sales

ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition

According to numbers from Gartner, the number of PCs shipped in the first quarter of 2022 was 7.3% less than the same quarter last year.

The number of PCs shipped in the first quarter of this year was 77.5 million, down from 83.5 million in the same quarter last year. This number includes desktops, notebooks, and Chromebooks. iPads were not included.

Gartner said that this drop can be largely attributed to the steep drop in demand for Chromebooks. In addition, the world is gradually coming to terms with the pandemic and opening up. And then there's the issue of the war between Russia and Ukraine.

Lenovo continues to be number one with over 18.2 million units shipped while HP is number two with 15.8 million units shipped. Both brands saw shipments drop 12.6% and 17.8% respectively.

Three brands, however, continued to thrive. The first is Dell, which is a strong number 3, with 13.7 million units shipped. That's up 5% from the same quarter last year.

Apple's Macs continued to impress and they moved just over 7 million units, up 8.6% from the same quarter last year.

ASUS, however, impressed the most with nearly 5.6 million units shipped. That's an increase of a whopping 20.6% from the same quarter last year.
