Default Top 10 World's Biggest Computer Makers Revealed

Back in the 1980s, during the days of the Apple II, an Apple PC of yesteryear - Apple was the world's biggest computer maker (by number of computers sold). Then it soon lost its lead when the company lost their way with Lisa from one side, and IBM PC and its numerous clones came out using Microsoft DOS (and later Windows) operating system. So this moment must be particularly sweet for old-timer Apple employees and fans of the brand. Apple is back on top!

Here is the list for the full year 2010 - the biggest computer makers in the world, when we include classic mainframes, desktop and laptop PCs and servers, and newer smaller comptuers, the netbooks, tablet PCs like the iPad, and the smartphones (and the other pocket PCs like the iPod Touch). The number in parenthesis is last year's ranking.
