Intel: People are buying more but cheaper laptops

A brief look at Intel's client computing group sales shows some interesting facts.

Compared with the same period a year ago, client computing group sales rose 1 percent to $9.8 billion even though volume rose 11 percent. Behind this figure is also a big discrepancy between laptop and desktop CPU sales.

Desktop processor sales collapsed 16 percent year-over-year but the average selling price of desktop CPUs remained flat. An interesting observation is that laptop processor revenue rose 16 percent year-over-year but that the average selling price of a laptop processor was 7 percent lower than a year ago.

Basically, people and businesses are buying more laptops but models with cheaper processors.
