HP controls 17.7 percent share of PC shipments, up from 17.3 percent last year, says Gartner. IDC has similar numbers, with HP at 18.1 percent.
Lenovo, thanks to a huge influx of laptop sales, moved to 13.5 percent from 11.1 percent last year.
Dell remained about even at 11.6 percent.
While sales have been shrinking for a couple of years due to recession and the development of tablets, IDC says there will likely be a large bounce back next year when "ultrabooks" become mainstream.
Ultrabooks are ultra light notebooks with lots of battery life and network connectivity.
