Sales in the personal computer have fallen quite sharply recently according to some leading market analysts. The PC market is in a great need to have some new hot selling product to hit the market to stop the trend in falling sales, unfortunately this is probably not going to happen anytime too soon.
The PC market throughout the world has basically slowed down to nothing more than a crawl this past 12 months. Sales are expected to rise just .9% for a second year running.
It is thought a major reason for the slow in PC sales is the rise in popularity of smart phones and tablets such as the iphone and ipad. This has also been helped by the wait on windows 8 being released and consumers being reluctant to splurge out on a new PC until this new operating system is released. If most consumers are as thought, waiting for the new Microsoft windows 8 operating system to be released then maybe critics of the new OS should be listened to. There are some hurdles that will come initially on release. Consumers will have to get used to the new look and feel of the OS which is not always as straight forward as it sounds. The operating system will have a complete over hall on the look and feel and this might not be welcomed by some people. It might take some time to educate the new market to the new way of thinking.
With the release of the new ultra book type designs coupled up with the ne windows 8 look and feel this could be a marriage made in heaven and good result in an upturn in sales in the New Year. It is predicted that over 350 million PCs will be sold this year, only up slightly from last year.
