Top 5 manufacturers of personal computers in 2Q

Hewlett-Packard Co. and Dell Inc. are both reporting quarterly results next week. They are the top two PC makers in the U.S.

HP already said it will take a massive charge against its earnings for the latest quarter, leading to a record loss of nearly $9 billion.

It comes as the maker of personal computers struggles to compete with mobile devices. Overall PC shipments declined in the U.S. in the second quarter, while worldwide shipments were nearly flat.
