Just read a new estimate (10th June) of 900 million personal computers, plus all the corporate machines.
Amazing, but still behind cell phone penetration: 4 billions by October 2009...
As of April 2002, 1 000 000 000 (one billion) personal computers have been shipped, and there will be 2 000 000 000 (two billion) by 2007; according to Gartner Dataquest.
However, Forrester Research says that in 2008, there were only 1 000 000 000 (one billion) personal computers IN USE. This is mainly due to the quick rate that technology becomes obsolete.
In 2012, there were 10.8% more computers sold than in 2011. In 2012 alone, 220 000 000 (220 Million, or 0.22 billion) computers were sold. Therefore, as of 2012, there are appropriately an additional 0.8 billion computers added to the total figure of personal computers in the world, with a slight reduction in the figure of those in use.
Total shipped: approx 2.8 Billion
Total in use: approx 1.4 Billion
NOTE: personal computers include laptops, smartphones, PDAs, tablets and desktops. does not include individual microchips such as those in digital watches, nor does it include simple cellphones such as old flip-phones.
There are 978,577,197,057 computers in the world and a third of those computers are manufactured by, norway sorry finland
About 20 billion people have computers, that's just in Africa! Imagine how many people in the world have computers if 20 billion people in Africa have them!
how many totaly kinds of computers in the world? my e-mail address : firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Too many. Not enough.
Maybe a million or more
A minimum of two computers can be a network - the maximum number is all the computers connected to the World Wide Web.
None considering those computers had not been invented
that's hard to tell because there are always computers being made and sold and there are always computers being thrown out and scrapped. If you go to speedtest. Net it shows you how many computers that are on the internet that exact moment
Who knows? Maybe most of the people have computers except the ones in the poor countries...
none what so ever What an idiot...
probably 200 million
only two main frame are there
how many computers in the business world have antivirus software that has been disabled or never installed properly?
Computers can be used for many things. They are used for work, for businesses, for schools, and to connect with people all over the world.
more than 1000 computer brand around the world
Computers have affected our world in many different ways. We use them for many things in the world now. If we didn't have computers we wouldn't have many things - traffic lights, some of the tills in shops etc. Things that are made in factories are sometimes made by robots - which need to be programed by a computer. Traffic lights are use computer technology ; changing the colours, simple as - but it is more complicated than it seems. If they didn't invent computers then our world would be almost like when we had electricity but no computers - we wouldn't have many different things. I hope this has helped.
What are the advantages of computers in the business world?
Computers are used for everything. Most people pay all of their bills on their computers. Computers are also a way that many people communicate with one another.
According to the CIA World Factbook there are an estimated as of 2005 there were 1,018,057,389 internet users worldwide. How many actually own computers is questionable.
