PC sales are not down because INTEL...
3 big reasons...
1. PC's do what people expect ever since Core 2 Duo days (excluding us) no need to upgrade
2. Tablets are taking over. My grandpa has a Kindle Fire and never leaves his chair...
3. Economy, nobody can afford a new PC and a iPad, but sheeple are going for the more trendy iPad
Customers ask me if they should just get a laptop because it will do everything a desktop will. I have to agree that it will do every thing THEY need it to. 2012 is the Death of the Desktop PC for the average consumer.
It's really a shame but I have to agree with you here.I think that desktop pc's are dying and they are only bought by people like us who like gaming and having a high performance with a PC,something you can't do with a cheap laptop.
Most of the needs of the average consumer are satisfied by both the tablet and laptop.
I have a laptop and a smartphone apart from my desktop pc.Honestly the PC is always the best,bigger screen,faster,more space in hard drives,etc.
I think that most people just don't see the advantages desktop pc's have cause they think that laptop or tablet is just enough for them,I totally disagree with them because the desktop can't be compared.
