China managed to surpass US as the world's largest PC market of the year.

A new IDC research shows that China managed to outgrow US as the world’s largest PC market. For all of 2011, US took the lead, but China was able to push past them this spring. China also claimed 22% of all PCs shipped at 18.5 million, with 21% (17.7 million) going to Americans. Due to this scenario, researchers predicted that China will be getting 21.8% for all of 2012, where the US would slip to 19.6%.
