Preliminary Q3 figures published by IT and telecom analysis company IDC show that sales of PCs on the Danish market increased by 30% compared to the same quarter last year. The strong growth indicates that 2005 will be a record year for PCs sales on the Danish market, even higher than last year's record of 845,000 PCs [Danish population is 5.4 million people- Ed]. In total 750,000 PCs have been sold in the period 1 January - 30 September.

The figures have surprised IDC. Anders Elbak, chief analyst at IDC comments: "We have monitored this market since the mid-1980s, and I have never seen anything like it". The main driver of the growth in Q3 was sales of laptop PCs to private users, which were up by 53% to 138,300 compared to the same quarter last year. Sales of desktop PCs were up by 13% to 126,200.

Up to now, companies and private consumers have replaced their PCs at regular intervals. This no longer seems to be the case according to IDC, since private consumers in particular are buying new computers although according to statistics they are in possession of one or more almost new PCs. The news was reported by IT internet news service Comon.
