Research firm Gartner estimates that the installed base of PCs worldwide exceeds one billion machines, and claims there will be twice that many in use only six years from now.
Some other interesting bits of information came from the study. The majority of those PCs are in “mature” markets, countries like the United States, Canada, the EU and others. However, they expect the more rapid growth to begin occurring in emerging markets, making of the “low-cost” PC more than just a fad, but a stepping stone to worldwide PC penetration.
