Intel's general manager of sales and marketing Sean Maloney claims first-time PC buyers are not going for netbooks. Instead, he sees netbooks as a secondary machine or a durable option for kids.
"I don't think first-time buyers are going to buy netbooks," Sean Maloney, Intel's general manager of sales and marketing, said at a media event organized by the company. "The first time you buy something you want the real deal. It's consistent not just in China, but all around the world."
"If you're going to spend your hard-earned money for the first time, you're going to put a computer in your house," he said.
Maloney said he doesn't see that trend changing any time soon.
