Tablets Killing Desktops Faster Than Ever

Tablets Killing Desktops Faster Than Ever

Accelerating sales of computer tablets are quickly putting desktop pcs out to pasture. Remember: these devices only came on the market in 2010. How rapidly they have changed the game.

"The contraction of the PC market continues faster than ever, eaten by the rapid growth of the tablet market, which is expected to outsell laptop and notebook devices for the first time this year and all PCs by 2015. But portable PCs may still be the saving grace for PC sales in the years ahead.

If there is anything new about the news coming out from IDC's Quarterly PC Tracker, it's the increase of the rate of the PC's decline.
