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.
