Despite the world economy's obvious problems, IDC's predictions for the PC market in 2008 suggest that a dual-digit growth is possible and will most likely be real. In 2008 IDC is seeing some 302 million units being shipped, meaning a 12.8% increase over 2007, while for 2009 a growth of 11% is expected.

"Lower cost consumer notebooks continue to drive PC market growth in all regions around the world," said Bob O’Donnell, Vice President for Clients and Displays. "Consumers are increasingly seeing notebooks as essential personal communication and information gathering tools and we expect that will continue to drive growth and higher PC penetration ratios for several years to come."

The total value of all shipped PCs is also set to grow this year and reach $280 billion or 7.4% over the results of 2007. It's still in the green.
