apple pc shipments down

Global PC shipments were significantly down in Q3, according to the IDC. But Apple was the hardest hit.

From my post at Forbes:

Overall PC shipments were down in the third quarter as consumers bought 68.2 million PCs, according to IDC, compared to 73.8 million in Q3 2022. That’s a 7.6% drop. No manufacturers were hit as hard as Apple, however, which shipped 23.1% fewer laptops and towers than last year.

The problem: last year’s equivalent quarter was huge for Apple as the company rushed to fulfill orders that did not ship during a Covid shutdown.
