Compared to the same quarter of 2009, the PC manufacturers have sold just over 24% more units.
The figures come on the back of an all time low retail price for the PC. Retail prices have slipped, due to consumers preferring netbooks and laptops.
The big winners so far at the start of 2010 are Lenovo (increase of 58%) and Acer (increase of 42%).
Lenovo had the second biggest number of sales worldwide, whilst Acer came in fourth.
It is expected that sales for April to June will also rise. All of the main PC makers have seen increases in worldwide sales for the start of 2010.
However, Hewlett-Packard is still a fair way ahead of the competition. In third place is Dell and in fifth came Toshiba.
