The Workstation Market Regaining its Health, but the Road to a Full Recovery Won’t be Short: Jon Peddie Research TIBURON, Calif— December 3, 2009. So far, the second half of 2009 for the workstation market is proceeding according to the script Jon Peddie Research (JPR) had written several quarters ago.

Q3’09 wasn’t a gangbuster quarter for the industry, but then it wasn’t expected to be. What JPR did predict was that the quarter would affirm two things:…
