Shipments of desktop, laptop and netbook computers in Western Europe fell almost 20% in the past year as customers and retailers opted for tablets such as the iPad, according to figures released on Wednesday.

Research company Gartner said the second quarter figures, which showed personal computer shipments in Western Europe fall to 12.7m units, amounted to a “structural change” in the market. Josh Halliday/The Guardian.
