PC Pitstop Tablet PC Survey Results–November 2012

Of those who say they do not currently own a tablet PC — 58% said they plan to buy a tablet PC this holiday season.

Nearly 1 in 4 computers sold last quarter (3Q 2012) were tablets…research firm IDC reported that 27.8 million tablets were sold worldwide in the third quarter of 2012 with Apple holding the majority even as other vendors, such as Samsung and Amazon, are catching up. But that’s not the story: Tablet sales have already approached nearly 25 percent of PC sales. As computer sales are in decline, sales of tablets rose 49.5 percent from the same quarter in the prior year. That’s more bad news for traditional computer makers.
