The current ranking in the U.S. is HP (26.6 percent), Dell (19.2 percent), Apple (12.3 percent), Lenovo (8.4 percent), Acer Group (7.9 percent) and others (25.7 percent).

Laura DiDio, an analyst with Information Technology Intelligence Consulting, said the reports from Gartner and IDC support the overall perception that buyers are not flocking to Windows 8, but she added that this was "not unusual" for the business market, since it "usually is slow going" for companies to upgrade, especially if new form factors, interaction, applications or drivers are involved.

DiDio added that, since tablets are not "optimized for productivity" in most cases, she can accept Gartner's reasoning about consumption for tablets and more productive tasks on a PC, but not the idea that many PC users will become tablet-only. Instead, she suggested, it might well be a situation where existing PCs are fine for many users, who are adding a tablet when they want to upgrade their computing capacity.
