2nd half 08 PC unit growth

Several market indicators suggest the market growth for PCs is slowing down for the second half of this year, according to a UBS Equity Research Report. Several companies have been lowering their third quarter forecasts for unit growth. Compal, original design manufacturer for companies including Dell and HP, has reduced its expectations five percent due to slowing US and Europe sales.

UBS was careful to note that industry revenues could be more revealing of overall performance, considering the competitive price lowering and introduction of lower cost notebooks this year. In contrast to volume giants HP and Dell, Apple could be an exception to the effects of softening markets with its new products, price flexibility, and iPhone sales.
