Among other things
According to fresh sales figures, China managed to overtake the US as the largest personal computer market in Q2.

After thirty years in the lead, the US market contracted 4.8 percent to 17.7 million units, while Chinese consumers went on a shopping frenzy and bought 18.5 million PCs, a massive 14 percent increase in a single quarter. At such a rate, China’s PC market could practically double by 2013.

In terms of yearly sales, the US will probably remain on top in 2011, but China will probably lead the way in 2012.
