Pundits predict PC sales will jump by 20% in 2010, mainly because mobile PCs will have a good year.

This is according to Christopher Riley, MD of notebook and accessories retailer The Notebook Company, who says recently-launched products like the Apple iPad are also set to push growth in new market segments.
International IT research and consulting firm Gartner says worldwide PC shipments are projected to total 366,1-million units in 2010, a 19,7% increase from the 305,8-million units shipped in 2009. Gartner's preliminary forecast expects the market to reach $245-billion worth of sales in 2010, up 12,2% from 2009.
