Analyst Gartner says the worldwide PC market grew 12% in the first quarter of the year, despite the threat of a global economic recession.

The analyst said worldwide PC shipments totalled 71.1 million units in the first quarter of 2008, a 12.3% increase on the first quarter of 2007.

"The US results were in line with our expectation, indicating that the PC market was modestly affected by the US recession, although there was no fundamental change in market conditions," said Mika Kitagawa, an analyst Gartner.

"The Europe, Middle East, and Africa and Asia/Pacific regions showed stronger than expected results, fuelled by solid mobile PC growth across most countries. Latin America continues its rapid growth due to consumer spending," he said.

Hewlett-Packard extended its lead over Dell as the number one provider of PCs.
