As for further discussion as to whether we are in ” the post-PC “or” PC era+ “, comes a new statistic that, for the first time since the bursting of the dot com bubble 11 years ago, sales pc falling.

The data is from iSuppli, which said that PC shipments will fall 1.2% from last year, down from 352.8 million units shipped last year, to 348.7 million units in 2012. Sales have been slow all year for all manufacturers, and only Lenovo seems to have sold more.

There is still hope that new models of computers come with and showing innovative designs to boost sales to the last quarter, considering that the operating system will be released on October 26.

The reasons for the drop in sales, in any case, are related in part to the economic crisis affecting several parts of the planet, and that has caused consumers to stop buying so many electronics to stretch your budget best. Furthermore, devices are taking space previously reserved for the PC. Some prefer to renew your or buy a tablet, and do take a little longer to the old PC rather than renew.

Will Windows 8 boost sales?
