Three months ago, Canalys released a survey that placed Apple as a leader in worldwide PC sales – because, in her methodology, not only desktops and laptops, but also netbooks and tablets are on the cake.

In an updated survey released yesterday, Canalys now said that Hewlett-Packard has managed to regain the leadership of Apple. The sum of Apple would have been 15.8 million, losing to HP by a measly 40 thousand (yes, 0.04 million :-P) units.

Lenovo recorded an incredible 50% growth year on year, ranking third. Completed the podium Acer and Dell, both with lower numbers than in 2011.

The PC market for consumers as a whole grew by 21%, according to Canalys, reaching 107 million units.
