This stat would true if you don't take into account I-Pads and other portable tablets. Also smart phones are popular now as well.
I think most households are still using the old Compaq or Emachine with the Pentium 4 as they cannot appreciate quad core processors and 8+ gigs of ram like the Chinese do. It's "good enough" for what they want so they are not purchasing new desktops.
That's my take and I do think tablets are cannibalizing desktops to a certain extent.
Somehow, ThunderBird, I doubt that anything like a majority of those Chinese PC purchases are of machines with «quad core processors and 8+ gigs of ram» - if, however, you have evidence to the contrary, I'd be most interested in seeing it ! One thing is true, in any event : anything that can be done to get IE6, which still enjoys a market share of nearly 40 % (computershttp://gs.statcounter.com/#browser_version-CN-daily-20080701-20110824) off Chinese computers will greatly contribute to computer security not only there, but 'round the world....
