A new report predicts worldwide sales of personal computers are bound for their first annual decline in 11 years.
The forecast issued Wednesday by the research firm IHS iSuppli projects that nearly 349 million PCs will be shipped this year. That would be a 1 percent decrease from nearly 353 million PC shipments last year.
Although small, the anticipated decline would be the first time that annual PC sales haven’t grown since 2001.
