Digitimes Research: Global all-in-one PC shipments to drop 3.9% on year in 2015, from TW

TaiwanDigi Times — With consumer demand for all-in-one PCs remaining weak, and Apple’s new high-end iMacs and the price cut for previous-generation models failing to drive sales, Digitimes Research expects all-in-one PC shipments to decline 3.9% on year in 2015 and reach around 13 million units. Since the market is unlikely to see any effective expansion, shipments in 2016 are expected to stay flat from 2015 or drop slightly by 0.5% on year.
