PC Sales Rises After XP End Of Support

PC support

           Profits from selling PC

Intel has recently reported a sudden spike in its revenue on the second half of 2014 and believes the rise in commercial PC shipments to be the reason behind the growth. The chipmaker and IT giant, Intel reported an increase in revenue of approximately $1 billion as the turnover of $13.5 billion in the second quarter is higher than $12.5 billion recorded before.

The firm further explained the reason for this sudden spike is due to the increase in investment for new machines compelled by the end of PC support for Windows XP in April 2014. More than the sale of home PC sector, the commercial PC sector caused the rise in sales due to the large number of equipments that required upgrades.

As was broadcasted in every form of media for months, Microsoft ended the support for Windows XP, which was running on extended support for over 9 years. The 13-year-old operating system was provided with security patches and important security updates throughout its lifetime, securing the PC against malicious attacks throughout the world. The end of this support would mean that any open vulnerability that is found could be manipulated by hackers for malicious and criminal intent. To know more about end-of-support, contact our PC support team.

Before the end-of-support date started, analysts at IDC had predicted an 8 percent growth in commercial PC shipments in second quarter of 2014, which constrasted with the 9 percent decline in consumer shipment. Rajani Singh, senior research analyst at IDC, commented about the issue, “Most of the growth we are seeing in the PC market is going to a mix of commercial desktop and laptop replacement of XP systems.”


      Intel sales rise due to PC sales

She continued to add that various PC replacements like tablets and palmtop would continue to hold their own commercial space and will not eat into the PC market after a certain point. According to Rajini, “Business users are coming to the realization that tablets can’t replace laptops when it comes to productivity.”  She continued to explain that, “When it comes down to productivity, as much as people want to rely on a tablet or their phone, in the workplace there is nothing better than a PC to replace a dying, old XP PC.”

Even though there is an appreciable spike in the growth of PC sales, this growth will not sustain and would soon die out. However, at the moment, most PC vendors have released interesting offers to allow you to upgrade to a new system at low cost. To receive PC support for upgrading your computer, contact our tech support team.
