Total PC unit sales were down 9%, however.

Commercial printing revenue was up 19% year-over-year while consumer printing revenue fell 6%.Lores said that as offices are reopening, companies are investing to improve the experience of their employees, and this continues to drive very strong PC demand. .

We are still operating in a supply-constrained environment, and we have been prioritizing commercial sales because margin is better for the company.
