PC sales decline fifth year in row

PC sales are down again. In fact, it’s been 5 years since there was an upturn in the industry. The shrinking market has been destroying some of the biggest companies in the PC manufacturing business as they’ve seen their profit margin eroded, followed by their sales declining.

Why? Isn’t it obvious? We’re all using our SmartPhones and Tablets more and more. I’m writing this on my iPad Pro right now. For the last 15 years, I’ve been using my MacBook or Mac Pro.

Maybe Apple has been right all along? Mobile First!

BTW, PC shipments fell 6.2% year over year 2015 to 2016. Sad to see the end of an era sometimes.
