PCs are going through a severe slump," said Jay Chou, a senior analyst with IDC's World-wide PC Tracker. "The industry had already weathered a rough second quarter, and now the third quarter was even worse." David Daoud of IDC said alternative devices like tablets continued to eat into the PC market.

Researchers IDC and Gartner Inc. IT -0.17% said PC shipments in the third quarter fell more than 8% from a year earlier, the steepest drop since at least 2001. A third report, from IHS iSuppli, projected PC shipments for the full year would decline for the first time in 11 years.

"This is definitively a crossroads" for the computer industry, said David Daoud, an analyst at IDC. "It could be a make or break moment."
