Why Are PC Sales Up And Tablet Sales Down?

    But I thought the PC is died.

    As has been said many times about this, it was just a migration of people who only needed the basics to get onto the internet but in the past had to buy a full featured desktop or laptop to get there. It wasn't the end of an era as was suggested.

    I fall under the "grandparent and kids" section I guess. I purchased an ipad cause I wanted something lightweight I could mess around with and that's exactly what I do. I play Game of War on the Ipad but everything else, documents, financing, etc I do on the desktop. The only real advantage the ipad has given me is if I am looking up information for a friend/relative I can just pull out my tablet from my shoulder case bag and press and say for that item to search for and go for there. It is convenience nothing more. Once that convenience has been fulfilled by those who needed it they will go back to the priority.

    It's like buying vehicles for some people. We have a "Sunday vehicle" one that looks all nice and shiny. Then we have an "every day vehicle" It's not a clunker yet but it's getting there!
