In my local newspaper's business section, I keep reading about how Intel is doing horribly because the PC market it just going down the tubes. Apparently, mass market consumers just don't give a damn about buying a PC anymore. Instead they just get a tablet or something.
So, if this really is the case, then shouldn't retailers end up with tons of unsold stock that they have to mark down to pennies on the dollar just to get it to move ? I haven't seen any of this yet. I'm just wondering if maybe in a few months we will start seeing pre-built machines being sold at rock bottom prices ? I know pre-built is normally not the way to go, but if you can get them for 50 percent off, why not ?
I just haven't seen the closeout sales that I would expect to have seen if the PC market is really tanking like the newspaper says they are.
