#10 iPad Eats Into The Consumer PC Market

The traditional PC market is crumbling with every passing day. In the third quarter of 2012, the PC sales were down by 8 percent on year-on-year basis worldwide; and particularly in U.S. it was a 14 percent plunge. A big chunk of the decline can be attributed to the rise of the iPad which has already sucked up about 20 percent of the consumer PC market. Apple sold 14 million iPads last quarter, which is more than the top PC maker, Lenovo, which shipped 13.7 million PCs. Throw in Apple's 4.9 million Macs, and it's the top computer maker by a mile giving Microsoft a red face.
