Lenovo passes Dell for second in PC shipments According to research firms Gartner and IDC, HP remains the top PC company but for the first time ever Lenovo has moved into second, surpassing Dell.
HP controls 17.7 percent share of PC shipments, up from 17.3 percent last year, says Gartner. IDC has similar numbers, with HP at 18.1 percent.

Lenovo, thanks to a huge influx of laptop sales, moved to 13.5 percent from 11.1 percent last year.

Dell remained about even at 11.6 percent.

While sales have been shrinking for a couple of years due to recession and the development of tablets, IDC says there will likely be a large bounce back next year when "ultrabooks" become mainstream.

Ultrabooks are ultra light notebooks with lots of battery life and network connectivity.

So...does this mean that HP might not pull out of the hardware game?

All of this news is nice, but what will be interesting is the amount of sales for PCs once the Christmas Season is over with. Then the numbers that come out will be very interesting indeed.
