IDC's research reveals Mexico's strong desktop PC growth of over 82% from a year ago was the largest contributor to a healthy regional expansion. Also fueling the growth of the desktop PC market is the continuous growth of local PC assemblers This is a list of assemblers. Hundreds of assemblers have been written; some notable examples are:
"A particularly successful strategy boosting Mexico's desktop market has been to bundle PCs with Internet service while offering flexible financing options," said Alexandra Martinez, analyst for IDC Latin America PC research. "This strategy targets the home and small business segments, tapping into lower economic levels that previously did not have access to this technology."
Regional notebook shipments reached over 102,000 units, a 17% increase from a year ago and a 37% increase sequentially. Improvements in pricing and in financing options have allowed notebooks to penetrate the home segment.
Compaq positioned itself as the number one PC vendor in each of the top six IT markets, capturing over 18% of the regional PC market.

Dell captured under 3% of the Latin American PC market share in Q3. However, it shows great potential for regional growth in the medium term as it begins manufacturing in Brazil in Q4 1999.
IDC's research indicates the Latin American PC market will continue to grow rapidly for the remainder of 1999. This growth will be led in great part by Mexico's booming PC market and economic recovery in the region. "Greater participation from the home segment during the holiday season will also boost PC shipments to the region in Q4," Martinez said.
