How the PC market grew 22.7%


Philip Elmer-DeWitt is a senior editor at Fortune.

The fastest year-to-year growth since iSuppli starting tracking computer shipments in 2003

The charts say it all. Three Asian suppliers -- Acer, Lenovo and ASUS (from a small base) -- led the field. Apple (aapl) and Toshiba were close behind. Hewlett-Packard (hpq) and Dell (dell) grew more slowly.

In terms of market share, HP is still No. 1, but Acer is gaining fast, having passed Dell to reach the No. 2 spot. ASUS also moved up, passing Apple to grab the No. 6 slot. See the pie charts below the fold.
