HP, Dell, Acer and Toshiba all saw their U.S. shipments drop. Only Apple saw its overall shipments grow.

Worldwide, HP retained its position as the leading PC manufacturer, despite a sales decline. Lenovo, which doesn't sell many computers in the U.S., saw a surge in sales, putting it in second place globally.
