    PC ownership to 'double by 2010'

    Lenovo is forecast to dominate future PC sales
    The number of personal computers worldwide is expected to double by 2010 to 1.3 billion machines, according to a report by analysts Forrester Research.
    The growth will be driven by emerging markets such as China, Russia and India, the report predicted.

    More than a third of all new PCs will be in these markets, with China adding 178 million new PCs by 2010, it said.

    Low-priced computers made by local companies are expected to dominate in such territories, Forrester said.

    The report comes less than a week after IBM, a pioneer of the PC business, sold its PC hardware division to China's number one computer maker Lenovo.
