EMEA PC market up 23% in Q2 2005

For the third quarter running, the EMEA PC market has surpassed expectations, expanding by more than 23% YTY in Q2 2005, according to IDC. Outpacing forecasts in unit terms, market value is likely to remain constrained, however, as the proliferation of entry-level price points across the market has been a major driver behind the unit growth levels observed.
