4. Apple

Apple took the fourth spot for the second quarter and was the only major brand that had an increase in shipments.

The company saw its market share rise to 7.8 percent in the quarter from 5.9 percent in the same period last year. The iMac and MacBook maker saw a 16.1 percent increase in global PC shipments after shipping more than 5.1 million units in the quarter, up from more than 4.4 million units in the same period last year.

Apple's growth was due to the fact that Apple retailers had no reason to reduce inventory ahead of the Windows 10 launch, and the fact that the company in March launched its refreshed 12-inch MacBook, which has garnered much attention as it is the thinnest laptop Apple has ever made.

3. Dell

Dell was No. 3 in the quarter with a market share of 14.5 percent, up from 14 percent in the year-ago quarter, according to IDC. The company shipped more than 9.5 million units in the quarter, down 8.7 percent from the 10.4 million units it shipped in the year-ago period.

Dell saw growth in the Asia-Pacific and EMEA markets, but that was offset by the 8.6 percent decline in shipments it saw in the US market.

At this year's CES event, Dell announced its XPS 13 laptop, featuring a 13-inch display on the body of a laptop that normally ships with an 11-inch screen.

2. Hewlett-Packard

HP took the No. 2 spot in the second quarter with a market share of 18.5 percent, according to IDC. The company shipped more than 12.2 million units in the quarter, down 10.4 percent from the 13.7 million units it shipped in the year-ago quarter.

HP was the top PC vendor in the US during the quarter with a 26 percent market share, despite seeing a 6.6 percent drop in shipments. The company saw a greater drop in shipments internationally as it had less demand for its entry-level notebooks.
