Dell moves back to second place in global PC market share According to the latest iSuppli figures, Dell has fought its way back into second place in global PC sales after losing the spot to Acer over nine months ago.
HP, despite losing share, remained on top, at 18.1 percent market share. Sales dipped 6.3 percent from the first quarter.

Dell sales fell as well, but Acer fell farther. Dell took 12.8 percent share for the quarter, with Acer falling to 12.4 percent.

Rounding out the top five were Lenovo and Toshiba. The China-based PC maker saw huge 18.6 percent growth from the first quarter moving up to 10.1 percent global share. Toshiba stagnated, falling slightly to 5.4 percent global share.

Dozens of other computer makers made up the remaining 41.2 percent, but all have less than 5 percent share.

Until the end of 2009, Dell was the perennial second-place spot holder, but Acer managed to erase a 6 point difference between 2008 and 2009.
