Regarding these PC sales, do any of these statistics take personally built PCs into consideration? I know the number would be very low, but it doesn't seem like they could record such sales since people buy different parts from several places.
I take it this is re: the ars article?

Usually this data is gathered for market analysis where they're interested in Dell vs HP with a backdrop of "Dell, HP etc" market, rather than absolute market of all personal computers.

That said, the "other" column may well include an estimate based on e.g. total PSU shipments less a % for repairs. That seems a reasonably reliable and efficient method for the catch-all group, and would catch self-builds along with all the small companies.
