PC Shipments Make History (by Plummeting at Record Rate)

Maybe more people are building computers since it's most likely going to be cheaper and you don't have to worry about all the crap that companies put on the system.



I was wondering notebooks gained 10% If they included netbooks in that figure. That could be the reason for notebook sales to increase in bad economic times as netbooks are alot cheaper.

Linux Mint,Dual boot/Vista,AMD Athlon+ x2 5600,3 Gig ram,500 Gig HDD,ATI 1300 Video.



If Windows 7 runs satisfactorily on a netbook (and it runs VERY well on a P4 1.7 Ghz Laptop with 1 Gig of RAM), this is going to make people think twice about upgrading hardware for ordinary computing. Why would you spend $500 on a new piece of hardware now when you can get a retail copy of Windows 7 for a third of the price, have a secure system and the ability to move it to a new machine when times get better?



You choose a flightless bird as a mascot and wonder why it doesn't take off?



maybe Microsoft could help stimulate sales by creating an ad campaign where they film you in a parking lot, and follow you into a store, have you diss on Macs in a round about way then pay for your PC, oh wait. . .



That's quite a drop. Maybe prices will start to come down on parts. Maybe?
