Why Are PC Sales Slow? Laplink Has the Answer!

There’s no denying end-user demand for PCs has fallen in recent years. Laplink has continued to research and identify the top issues that result in delaying purchases of PCS. While analysts claim “the PC is dead,” hundreds of millions of PCs are still being sold each year. So why is demand down?

IDC estimates that just over 300 million PC will be shipped by the end of 2013, a 10.1% drop in total computer sales from 2012. However, IDC and other analysts expect the decline in PC sales has nearly run its course, with a very slight decline predicted in 2014. When discussing its most recent quarterly financial report, Intel’s CFO Stacy Smith said that the market for personal computers may be close to bottoming out. Several other PC manufacturers and suppliers have made similar statements recently. And just this week, Deutsche Bank added Intel to its short-term buy list, noting improving PC demand. IDC has also reported that PC usage is higher than tablets or phones, relied upon most for productivity.

Over the past 10 years, Laplink has surveyed PC buyers to identify what would accelerate their purchase, while reviewing similar data from other industry leaders. All conclusions have been the same: in 2013, given a specific level of demand, potential PC buyers have deferred purchase due to the cost of a new PC and due to concerns about migrating their new PC—the same concerns seen in every similar survey performed over the past 10 years.

Solution to the Windows Easy Transfer Problem: PCmover

Microsoft users upgrading to Windows 8.1 were in for a big shock when they opened their trusty Windows Easy Transfer tool.

Microsoft’s latest version of Windows has significantly reduced the usefulness of Easy Transfer. Previously, Microsoft allowed users to transfer files and settings directly from one Windows PC to another across a network or using an Easy Transfer Cable. Now, in Windows 8.1, users can only transfer data files using only external media, like an external hard drive or USB stick.

It’s even worse if the old PC is running Windows XP. In that case, Microsoft will not allow Easy Transfer to be used at all.
