A confluence of recent events has gotten me thinking about laptops. First, IDC and Gartner released PC market surveys that suggest a significant slowing in the declines plaguing PC sales for the past few years. Then last week, due to "stronger than expected demand for business PCs," Intel said it was raising Q2 and full-year revenue and gross margin expectations.
It's too early to tell if these developments signal longer-term PC sales stability (with annual sales of about 300 million units globally) or even an upward trend, but it's still good news for under-the-gun PC makers.
The recent launch of Microsoft's new Surface Pro 3 also contributed to my thoughts. Newly minted CEO Satya Nadella insisted that the company is "not interested in competing with our OEMs when it comes to our hardware." However, that was contradicted by Microsoft Surface design lead Panos Panay exuberantly declaring, "This is the tablet that can replace your laptop." So can tablets, including the new Surface Pro 3, truly replace laptops?
That depends on the user. For consumers interested in little more than media consumption, email/messaging, social networking and similar lightweight tasks, maybe so. But for business users, not really. At least that's my conclusion after testing a new Dell Latitude 12 E7240, the company's top end business class ultra-mobile laptop.
