The era of the PC isn’t as over as you might think

Business Technology | September 4, 2013

Don’t believe the hype. Yes, you’ve heard in the tech press how the PC era is finished and that tablets have taken over. But are these claims true? Are PCs truly dying? The writers at ITworld, in a recent feature, assert that no, the PC isn’t dying. The truth is, according to ITworld, the PC continues to be necessary as ever.

Bad Signs?

The “PC is dead” movement was driven by HP’s decision to depart the PC market. ITworld also refers back to the comment by the late Steve Jobs that PCs are like trucks that people needed when they lived rural lives, but that today everyone drives cars.

Flawed argument?

ITworld, though, has produced a solid counterargument. First, it points out that the Ford F150 Pickup is always the top-selling vehicle in the United States. That, of course, is a truck. And the reason? People need trucks to work.

PCs and Work

And, ITworld argues, people need PCs to work. You can’t type reports on tablets. You’ll find it difficult to create spreadsheets or slideshows, too. You’ll need a PC for that. And as long as people in this country continue to work, ITworld says, they’ll continue to need PCs.
