The PC market has seen its first growth quarter in six years, according to research firm Gartner. The streak is over: Gartner found PC shipments were up globally in Q2 2018, the first quarter of year-over-year global PC shipment growth since the first quarter of 2012.

Gartner estimates that worldwide PC shipments grew 1.4 percent to 62.1 million units in Q2 2018. The top five vendors were Lenovo, HP, Dell, Apple, and Acer. Lenovo in particular saw big gains (its highest growth rate since the first quarter of 2015), although that's largely due in part to the inclusion of units from its joint venture with Fujitsu.

The economic crisis is over, and people and companies are buying PCs again.

I had complained these last seven years about the lack of evolution of RAM memory and high prices of HDD drives. Maybe with more demand the prices will drop a little bit.
Is there hope for PC/Keyboard/mouse lovers?
