Thanks to Surface, Microsoft is now a top five PC maker in the US
Microsoft has a hit on their hands. According to numbers from market research firm Gartner, Microsoft is now the fifth biggest PC maker in the US.
Microsoft displaced Acer to reach the top five. But, their share of 4.1% is still some ways off of their rivals.
Fourth place Apple is far ahead with 13.7%. The number one brand in the US is HP with a market share of just over 30%.
Worldwide, Lenovo is the leader with a market share of 23.6%. HP is in second place and is not far off with 21.8%. Apple is fourth with 7.3%. Microsoft did not make the top five worldwide.
Still, this is good news for Microsoft and a sign that Surface devices are hitting the right notes with users.
