Sales of personal computers in Brazil decreased 27 percent in August over the same month of last year to 760 thousand units, reported on Thursday the consulting company IDC Brazil.
Of the total, were marketed 293 thousand desktops (39 per cent of the total) and 467 thousand notebooks (61 percent). In August, 28 percent of sales were to the corporate market and 72 percent for the final consumer.

The data also shows drop in sales compared with July this year, when 787 thousand PCs were sold, down 35 percent compared to July of last year, according to data released on Thursday by the Institute. They were sold in July 324 thousand desktops (41 percent) and 464 thousand notebooks (59 percent), and 31 percent for the corporate market and 69 percent for the final consumer.
For the analyst, 2014 will have a 24 percent drop in sales of PCs, the strongest ever recorded in this market.
