"How many computers are there in the world?

According to Gartner Dataquest's statistics, in April 2002 the
billionth personal computer was shipped. The second billion mark was
supposedly reached in 2007.

But how many computers are actually in use? According to a report by
Forrester Research, there were over one billion PCs in use worldwide
by the end of 2008.

And with PC adoption in emerging markets growing fast, it is estimated
that there will be more than two billion PCs in use by 2015, Forrester
predicts. Therefore, whereas it took 27 years to reach the one billion
mark, it will take only 7 to grow from 1 billion to 2 billion."
