Global all-in-one PC shipments for 2009 may breeze past previous forecasts. According to a report in China’s Commercial Times,
global all-in-one PC shipments for 2009 are now expected to touch 6.5 million units
, which is considerably higher than the previous estimate of 5 million units.
The new estimate will certainly please Apple, for it alone is expected to ship 3 million units. The very report further says that the penetration rate of all-in-one PCs – computers with the monitor and CPU bundled together in one console – will rise to 5% this year, 9% in 2009, and 12% in 2012.
