PC shipments in EMEA totaled 21.6 mln units in Q1 2006, a 13.7% increase from the same period in 2006. Strong demand in Central Eastern Europe (CEE) and Middle East and Africa (MEA) regions bolstered the overall PC growth in EMEA. The EMEA PC market was again driven by strong consumer mobile PC demand. Growth in the professional market was soft with deskbased growth that was particularly weak. In Asia/Pacific PC shipments reached 15.7 mln units, a 10.3% increase from Q1 2006. The overall market performance was slightly weaker than projected due to weaker deskbased PC growth. In China, Q1 is traditionally the weakest shipment quarter of the year due to the Lunar New Year celebrations. However, the PC market in China grew 15.2% in Q1 2007 with deskbased PC growth of 10.1% and mobile PC growth of 38.3%.
