Western Europe set to see growth in PC demand

Demand for personal computers in western Europe is set to return to
modest growth by the end of this year, in spite of the fact that demand
in the region fell by 4 per cent during the recent first quarter.

According to data from technology research group Gartner Dataquest,
Dell, the world's largest PC maker, enjoyed the strongest growth in
Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Dell's sales in the first quarter
were up 8.4 per cent on the previous year, against a decline of 6.1 per
cent for Compaq and a fall of 13.6 per cent for IBM, which has been
reducing its exposure to the PC market.

Gartner said it did not expect to see a more general recovery in IT
spending until the second half of 2003. Although it expected modest
growth in PC demand later this year, Gartner said sales could still be
lower than levels attained during 2000.
