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!

Windows does NOT sell computers !... Windows is the operating system used by 95% of the world's computers.

None considering those computers had not been invented
A minimum of two computers can be a network - the maximum number is all the computers connected to the World Wide Web.
