In the first 30 years of the PC industry—from 1975 to 2004—cumulative PC sales surpassed 1.4 billion  units. In the next five years—2006 through 2010—cumulative PC sales will reach 1.3 billion units or nearly as much as the first 30 years, according to Computer Industry Almanac. Cumulative PC sales reached nearly 130M units in 1990, over 1.6B in 2005 and are forecasted to top 2.9B in 2010.

The leading PC companies have changed considerably in the last 20 years. Until the early 1990s Apple or IBM was the worldwide leader in PC unit sales. Since 1994 Compaq, Dell or HP have been the leader in PC unit sales.
