IDC: PC procurement in the Netherlands grew by more than 40 percent




The PC procurement in the Netherlands is 40 percent higher than the same period a year earlier, recent months says market researcher IDC. This is mainly due to the end of support for the old Windows XP, so that many users were replacing their system.

The Netherlands is one of the countries where the growth of the PC purchase was the hardest, along with Germany and Spain, says IDC. In total, the purchase of PCs in Western Europe increased by more than 25 percent, that of the whole of Europe, Africa and Middle East by 10 percent. It is the first major increase in the PC market in years.

The PC market is benefiting from the end of support for Windows XP, argues IDC. Consumers and companies therefore often replaced machines for specimens with newer versions of Windows; In recent years asserted that such purchases may often off.

IDC is not the first to notice that the end of Windows XP for a boost from the Dutch PC market has created. CBS figured all that computer stores half more products sold compared to the spring of last year.
