Gartner reported that PC shipments totaled 80.3 million units in Q3. Subtracting an estimated 4.4 million Macs yields an estimated 75.9 million Windows PCs. (The total will be less than this as some PCs will not ship with Windows).

This total is lower than the total shipped in the same period of 2008.

The graphs above show the Gartner data and the split between tablets and PCs. (Tablet and Mac data for Q3 is not yet available).

If we include all iOS and Android devices the “computing” market in Q3 2008 was 92 million units of which Windows (including Windows Mobile or Windows Phone) was 90% whereas in Q3 2013 it was 269 million units of which Windows was 32%.

Any guesses on what this market will look like in 2018?
