The total PC sale during the last fiscal (2008-09) was 67.9 lakh units, which indicates a decline of 7 per cent over the previous year (2007-08), Manufacturers’ Association for Information Technology (MAIT) said on Tuesday.

However, with business sentiment gradually gaining momentum PC consumption in the current fiscal 2009-10 is expected to cross 73 lakh units registering a 7 per cent growth, it added.

“IT consumption in 2008-09 was severely impacted, especially in the second half of the fiscal, by the slowdown. Notebook sales declined by 17 per cent compared to a 114 per cent growth in the previous year and sales of desktops also declined by 4 per cent,” MAIT Executive Director Vinnie Mehta said.
