200 Million PCs

200 Million PCs were sold worldwide in 2005!

According to IDC, a market intelligence company, the actual number is 208.6 million.

200 million is an interesting number. It’s even more interesting when you consider a 15% per year growth rate. If we assume a steady 15% growth then in 12 years, in 2017, we will see 1 billion PCs sold in 1 year.

Here’s the breakdown.
