Citing figures from International Data Corporation (IDC), Christopher Papa, Country Manager at Dell Philippines, said the Philippines is the only SEA country that registered growth in the first quarter of the year where demand for notebook PCs grew by about 24%. While other regions reported declines in the shipment volume of notebooks, it is only in the Philippines where volume is increasing, he said.

Papa said IT spending in the Philippines will grow by 10% by the end of 2016, where a large chunk of which will be spent in the acquisition of hardware such as PCs, notebooks, networking services and so on and so forth.
