Taiwan PC OEMs Rising

New sales figures show Acer, Asus, and Lenovo putting up a serious fight for top positions this quarter. According to data released from Gartner, Acer saw an increase in sales of a respectable 31.6% and just barely edging out Dell for the #2 spot. Meanwhile, Lenovo gained an even more impressive 47.2% and stays at a comfortable #4. Both are the result of strong netbook sales as well as increased spending in the consumer PC market.

Asus however, was the biggest winner with a staggering increase of 78.5% in global PC sales and managing to knock Toshiba out of the top five.
