Worldwide PC Monitor Market Sees Sequential Growth in Q3

Total worldwide PC monitor shipments were more than 35.0 million units in the third quarter of 2013 (3Q13), an increase of 4.5% compared to the previous quarter and 1.2 million units more than forecast, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker. Year-over-year growth was -8.6% in 3Q13, largely due to the ongoing decline in PC sales.

"Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan)(APeJ), Western Europe, and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) outperformed the overall market in the third quarter and increased their regional market shares," said Jennifer Song, Research Analyst, Worldwide Trackers at IDC. "China and India were the top growth drivers within APeJ, while Germany and Russia were the leading country markets in Europe."

HP and Google Halt Sales of Chromebook 11

Launched just about a month ago, the Chromebook 11 is now no longer available for purchase due to issues with the included charger. According to Google and HP, they received a 'small number of user reports' saying that the charger got damaged due to overheating while in use.

Chromebook 11 owners are advised to stop using the original charger and instead use a third-party micro-USB charger, at least until further notice. The two companies are currently working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to find 'the appropriate corrective action' which could mean an exchange program, swapping the potentially faulty chargers with new ones (for free of course).

PC Shipments Down 7.6% in Q3, According to IDC

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 81.6 million units in the third quarter of 2013 (3Q13). In year-on-year terms, the market contracted -7.6%, ahead of a projected decline of -9.5% for the quarter, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. While shipments remained weak during the early part of the quarter, the market was somewhat buoyed by business purchases, as well as channel intake of Windows 8.1-based systems during September.

A slight uptick in business volume contributed to shipments. The top three vendors (Lenovo, HP, and Dell), which all have an important presence in the enterprise and public sectors, each saw modest positive year-on-year growth during the quarter. Conversely, consumer sentiment remained lukewarm at best, as evidenced by the continued struggles of Acer and ASUS.

HP Chromebook 11 Detailed

HP is working on its next big [well, little] thing, the Chromebook 11. Details of the lightweight notebook for people who just can't stay offline, surfaced in leaked documents by the company and retailers. The 11.6-inch notebook will be both slimmer and lighter than Chromebook 14. Specifically, it will be just 0.7-inch (17 mm) thick with the lid closed, and weigh just 1.08 kg. Its battery will be designed to keep the notebook running for up to 6.5 hours on a full charge. Neither HP nor the retailer in question, BestBuy, disclose hardware specs, but we don't expect them to be too different from those of the Chromebook 14. Freebies from the retailer include 100 GB of Google Drive cloud storage for 2 years (a $120 value).

Lenovo Overtakes HP as the Top PC Vendor While U.S. Shipments Stabilize: IDC

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.6 million units in the second quarter of 2013 (2Q13), down -11.4% compared to the same quarter in 2012 but slightly better than expected, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. Total shipments were effectively right on forecasts of 75.4 million and growth of -11.7%, although Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan)(APeJ) were a few points below expectations with the difference made up in the United States.

The numbers reflect a market that is still struggling with the transition to touch-based systems running Windows 8 as well as justifying ultrabook prices in the face of economic pressures and competition from tablets and other devices. A silver lining is that a number of vendors and regions seemed to be focused on inventory reduction during the second quarter, which could reflect planned launches of new models as well as lower inventory going into the second half of the year. However, it also reflects some caution among vendors and the channels in the face of remaining challenges for PCs and more than a year of declining shipments.

IDC Lowers Forecast Growth for PC Monitors While Average Screen Size Increases

Continued decline in demand for PC desktops has led International Data Corporation (IDC) to lower its estimate of PC monitors shipped in the first quarter of 2013 (1Q13) to 33.8 million units, down from its previous forecast of 34.7 million units for the quarter. In the latest update of the Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, IDC also lowered its total shipment forecast for 2013 from 140.1 million units to 134.4 million units, which will represent a 9.9% year-on-year decline. By 2017, worldwide shipments are expected to drop further to 113.6 million units.

"The continued decline in PC desktops is bringing about changes in strategy and product focus in the PC monitor market," said Jennifer Song, Research Analyst at IDC. "With Windows 8 operating system, we expect to see more touch-based monitors although price points are a little high. Average screen size of the market is also expected to increase to 21.4" in 2017 from 20.4" in 2012."

SMART Modular Technology Announces 24GB CoolFlex DDR3 RDIMM

SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a leading independent designer, manufacturer and supplier of value added subsystems including memory modules, flash memory cards and other solid state storage products, today announced the addition of a 24GB CoolFlex RDIMM to its product lineup. The 24GB DDR3-1333 1.35V RDIMM helps solve unique memory capacity constraints in servers. SMART's CoolFlex module product family uses state-of-the-art flexible substrate technology to increase system memory capacity.

Servers configured with two processors and sixteen registered DIMMs are generally limited to a maximum memory capacity of 256GB. When using 16GB DDR3-1333 RDIMMs these systems can be fully populated. However, when switching to 32GB four-rank RDIMMs, the maximum number of DIMMs per Channel (DPC) drops down to one. A system configured with two channels per processor and four DIMMs per channel can only be populated with one 32GB RDIMM per channel for a total memory capacity of 128GB. SMART's new 24GB Coolflex RDIMM solves this constraint by allowing these systems to be fully populated with sixteen 24GB RDIMMs totaling 384GB and representing a 50% increase in memory capacity.
