Largest Quarterly Drop In PC Shipments On Record Attributed To Windows 8
Posted on Thursday, April 11 @ 12:40:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
The decline in PC shipments for the first quarter of 2013 are the worst since a record was first kept back in 1994.
According to Games Industry, the PC market suffered a whopping 13.9% year-on-year decline, with a total of just 76.3 million units shipped globally. While the rise of Apple and the soaring popularity of other devices like tablets have undoubtedly made an impact, Bob O’Donnell, the Clients and Displays VP at IDC, said that Windows 8 is certainly to blame as well.
It's no secret that Windows 8 is hated by many, but what do you think of the Microsoft OS? Will its probable integration into the new Xbox be problematic? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
