    PC sales stay strong
    "The economy may be teetering, but the personal computer business is still
    nimbly running at full speed, according to the tally of sales in the fourth
    quarter of 2007 from the International Data Corporation. Worldwide, 77.3
    million PCs were sold in the quarter, up 15.5 percent from the fourth
    quarter of 2006. That represents almost double the growth rate of 2005 to
    2006."
