PC sales fall in Europe

If one believes the figures recently published by Gartner, PC sales have fallen by 19% between the second quarter 2010 and second quarter 2011, representing a decrease 2.8 million units sold. Solely on the consumer segment, the decrease reached 27% and even 50% if one takes into account that netbooks.

This decrease is explained by the economic climate, as well as competition from touch pads (not included in the study of Gartner) and to a lesser extent, smartphones.
Aware that the development of touch pads is one of the causes of poor sales of laptop computers, the different manufacturers should continue to release new models shelves in the weeks or months ahead. They should also, like Dell's focus on products and services with high added value (computer services, data security, or cloud computing).
