World PC Shipments Drop To Lowest Point Since Q2 2011

Per Canalys, “Worldwide PC shipments (desktops, notebooks, two-in-ones and tablets) totaled 101 million units in Q1 2016, as total volumes dipped by 13% year-on-year to their lowest point since Q2 2011″… 

This does not surprise me… What do you think is the cause for this???

  1. This doesn’t necessarily mean PCs are “dying.” Rather, most people who “want” them now own one. It is then up to us to replace our devices as we see fit, a slower process that will decline sales more and more as time goes on.

      Thank you for visiting my blog. I agree… Also, with all of the device selections available in this generation (especially smartphones), it only makes sense that the sales numbers for PCs will continue to dwindle, coupled with the fact that PCs seem to last longer these days. The article mentions that tablet sales are down, as well.

      Again, thank you for visiting (and commenting).

      Rick
