UK channel recovery driven by notebooks says Context

Recovery in the UK PC and low-end server markets fell sequentially in May but was up on last year as shipments and revenues generated through distribution saw double digit growth.

Figures by channel analyst Context revealed unit growth on PCs, Intel based servers and workstations was up 25% on the same month in 2009 and revenues climbed 20.5% to a little over £99m .

"Revenue growth remains healthy in all three main product categories - notebooks, desktops and x86 servers - due to healthy performances in all three categories," said Context senior research analyst Marie-Christine Pygott.

The primary sales driver in the month unsurprisingly was notebooks, she added as "mainstream systems have begun to grow more strongly in units than netbooks", with notebook unit growth up 33% compared to 7% for netbooks.
