Chinese Firm Lenovo Becomes No. 1 PC Maker

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

NPR's business news starts with more bad news for HP.

And that robs a struggling HP from a title the company had long enjoyed: the world's number one PC vendor. It's falling behind. Still, the firm's data also suggests a worldwide dip in PC sales of about eight percent over the past year. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
