The PC industry has already shipped one billion units so far this year, according to Gartner Dataquest Inc. in a report entitled "The Billionth PC Ships."

According to Gartner, the billionth PC unit was shipped last April and the industry is predicted to ship its two billionth PC by 2008. However, for the PC industry to meet this target, Gartner says that the prices of the systems must continue to decrease.

"The PC is a tool that allows humans to leverage intellectual ability," said Martin Reynolds, VP and research fellow from Gartner. "The PC allows companies to complete basic tasks with fewer employees, freeing up resources that can be used to grow the business by being able to decrease process cycle times, reducing the amount of working capital consumed by administrative processes."
