4 Reasons the PC Market Will Be Reborn


4 Reasons the PC Market Will Be Reborn

Konrad Krawczyk at Digital Trends outlines 4 compelling reasons the PC Market could be on the verge of a rebirth.

End of Windows XP support
The end of Windows XP support is forcing a notable amount of people to ditch their PCs and get new ones.

New, super-cheap laptops are about to hit the market
Most people want a great deal on, well, everything. This extends to computers as well. All you need to do is take a gander at Amazon’s list of best-selling notebooks, which is dominated by both Windows and Chrome OS systems priced between $250 and $500.

Hear that? It’s the holiday shopping season, and it’s coming fast
It may be 85 degrees and icky outside (in New York City, at least). But before you know it, you’ll have to start thinking about what to buy for all those holidays bunched up at the end of December; Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Festivus, and so on. One of things bound to come up often will be “new computer/laptop.”
And that’s when the aforementioned super-cheap Windows laptops will come in.

The Windows 9 factor
Windows 8 and 8.1 remain unpopular, and that will probably never change. Those statistics from Net Marketshare that we referred to earlier also state that, combined, Windows 8 and 8.1 don’t even come close to the user base that Windows XP still boasts.

  1. hahaha Im making money easily transforming win 8 and 8.1 back into win 7 Go on microsoft screw urself again with win 9 Keep on not listening to general public

  2. If your old PC does what you need it to, then buy W7 and upgrade it.
    That is what i did to my old PC.
    The thing i miss the most from XP is Outlook EXPRESS.
    It did what i wanted from an email program.
    Also i made it XP/W7 dual boot, so i can still play my old programs and games that do not work on W7 and newer versions.

  3. Windows7 has everything I need and in my opinion it is the best successor ever to XP. 8 and 8.1 had no attraction for me and from what I read about 9 I'm not convinced that Microsoft will still have failed to learn from the comments of Windows dedicated users

  4. Windows 8 can be transformed into a familiar XP or Win 7 interfaced OS with Classic Shell (free) or Start 8 ( 4.99) and others. So there's no reason to shy away from Win 8 anymore.

  6. Maybe. When an update fouled up windows on my netbook, I loaded Linux and have not looked back. The old Dell Mini 9 probably has a few more years in it.
