The analyst firm Canalys has reported that US PC shipments declined more slowly during the second quarter compared to the same period the year before. The category, which includes desktops, notebooks, and workstations, declined 6% year-over-year with 18.2 million units.

The company said that notebooks, which includes mobile workstations, declined 4% to 15.2 million shipments. A steeper decline was avoided by the return of Chromebook demand in the education sector.

Things were not as good for desktops which saw a steeper decline with shipments falling by 12% year-over-year to 3.0 million units. Canalys also noted that the US tablet market saw a 5% decline during Q2 to 10.3 million units.

Commenting on the figures, Ishan Dutt, Principal Analyst at Canalys, said:
