The long-slumping PC market showed some signs of life in the first quarter, registering the first year-on-year increase in five years, with HP, Lenovo, Apple, Dell and Acer all reporting sales gains.

According to IDC:

  • HP retook the top spot for the first time since the first quarter of 2013, thanks to a 13% year-over-year increase.
  • Lenovo fell to the second spot, amid only 1.7% global growth. It also had its first U.S. decline since the third quarter of 2009, with sales down 4.2 percent year-over-year.
  • Dell grew 6.2 percent to maintain the third spot, while Apple remained in fourth with 4.1% year-over-year growth. Acer regained ground, finishing fifth globally, on a 2.9% sales increase.
  • The rest of the PC industry, meanwhile, posted an 11 percent drop in sales as business continues to shift to the global giants at the expense of everyone else.
