Everything is slowing down, people are getting device overload and have limited disposable income. I have so many stupid devices that I have to label cords for when I move stuff. You can only own so many laptops, phones, desktops, tablets, etc. The tablet market isn't even fully developed and it's about to be deluged.

I have a great desktop that I won't need to upgrade for a long time unless there is a significant reason to do so. Same story with my laptop. With application developers split on where they're putting their resources we're not seeing many reasons or constraints that would require a hardware upgrade either.

I totally agree. Even games these days aren't really pushing the envelopes (thanks consoles) so there is little to no need to keep upgrading like in the old days (new video card every 6-12 months)

Especially with the recent boom of tablets, smart phones etc, it is a pretty obvious path PC sales are headed.

Went over to a family friend to fix up her 10+ years old computer that got some viruses on it, and she said I didn't understand why all the younger people were on their cell phones all the time until just recently I got one of those smart phones and now I understand. This thing can do 90% of what I was doing on my PC. Sending e-mails, check facebook, online banking, etc etc.
She is writing a book so she needs the PC for typing but otherwise why would she buy another PC?
