Despite the popularity of smaller tablet computers, personal computer shipments worldwide are expected to grow by more than 4 percent this year. But pc sales are projected to jump 10 percent next year.

Market researcher Gartner says the growth is because of new slim laptops known as ultrabooks and this year's expected launch of the Windows 8 operating system.
