We never thought we would see the day when PC sales hit such lows as they did recently. According to the technology research firm Gartner, 2013 seen a 10 percent decline in PC sales and there is a reason for that. IT companies are using the latest and greatest technology for their clients and that technology will soon not include PC’s, desktops especially.
Laptops will be around for a while, but even then the laptop presence is expected to steadily decline as tablets and two in one devices continue to improve. The sleek design and surprisingly dependable processing power of many tablets and two in ones show a clear shift in dominance.
All IT products will always need to be supported, but with a 38 percent increase in tablets and two in one sales in 2014 companies have to adapt. At Tecvar we did just that testing out the power of the most popular devices such as the Surface and newest IPAD’s so we can provide support to users.
With the work force becoming younger and the importance of technology in the younger generations lives we are sure to see these numbers keep going the way they are. It is important for customers to understand and be okay with change that may include eventually phasing out laptops and desktops completely. This won’t be for a while, but the numbers do not lie and the public is starting to absolutely prefer two in ones and tablets.
Will we see a day when all the devices in the office are tablets and two in ones? Probably, not anytime soon, but there is no denying that the need to learn and evolve with technology is something that all companies need to do. We all know how important having the right equipment to do a job with is, and eventually the right equipment will not be a traditional PC anymore. What do you think?
