According to the latest data by market research firm IDC, HP gripped a PC market share of only 8.5% in China and dropped out of the top three, down to fourth in rankings.

The IDC data shows that Lenovo topped the list with a market share of 31.7% while Acer and Dell comes in second and third with a market share of 10.9% ad 10.4% separately. Industry experts remarked that it would be not that easy for HP to compete with Lenovo, Acer and Dell if the company fails to boost its market share to above 10%.

Actually, HP ranked second in the first quarter of last year, but since then its sales decreased drastically and was overtaken by Acer and HP in the second quarter of 2010.
