Lenovo has apparently surpassed HP to become the world's top PC maker. Though this was expected, most predicted it would come in early 2013. Guess the PC industry in the west is worse than previously thought...

Chinese PC maker Lenovo has replaced Hewlett-Packard as the world's top PC maker, according to preliminary figures released by research firm Gartner.

Gartner said Lenovo shipped 13.8 million units in the third quarter, compared with HP's 13.55 million.
It said Lenovo's "aggressive" price cuts had helped it gain substantial market share.

However, research firm IDC's data put HP at the top, though it showed the gap between the two was closing.
