Windows 7 not expected to boost PC replacement until 2H 2010

Posted on Sunday, September 27 2009 @ 14:06:10 CEST by

Sources at notebook makers told DigiTimes that Windows 7 may not spur PC replacement demand until the second half of 2010:
Windows 7 is unlikely to have any obvious impact on PC demand in the tail-end of 2009, according to sources at notebook players, who believe demand should not be expected to pick up until the second half of 2010, when large enterprises and governments begin to expand their expense budgets.

Based on past experience, PC replacement demand is not driven significantly by the consumer market, but rather enterprise and government purchases, the sources noted.

That's because the hardware is going through an evolution (integrated memory controller and USB 3.0) that won't be in all types of machines until mid 2010. So it's not really the fault of Win 7, but rather that the hardware has been horribly lagging in getting a generational change onto the streets.
