PC manufacturers not interested in tablets

Written by Nick Farell



Let Apple have them all


Manufactures are slowly killing off their plans to make tablets having come to the conclusion that they are just another Apple based fad like the iPod.

Only Amazon and Samsung have managed to do anything really interesting with Tablets and all the rest have proved to be a waste of production. Tablets have killed off the mini-notebook segment and traditional laptop sales are currently being strained by worldwide economic turmoil and supply shortages stemming from recent flooding in Thailand.

According to DigiTimes the notebook industry is in for a rapid upturn next year as manufacturers wade into to Ultrabooks. PC makers are reportedly enthusiastic about Intel's thin-and-light initiative, not least because Ultrabooks offer greater profitability than standard mobile machines. What has stopped them making shedloads of cash on them so far has been high prices, but apparently that is set to end next year with loads of them out there for less than $1,000.

Ultrabooks are better in any way possible.

Yeah, instead of saying no thanks I don't want Windows 7 I'll have to say no thanks I don't want Windows 8. I'm not saying that I would want Android or iOS either...

Problem is, all of you are in your own little world and don't think about every application that these would be good for. I'm actually hanging out for a decent Windows tablet for an industrial application, I have production control software that only runs on windows, so for me having a native windows tablet would be great so I can have a device that's portable onto the shop floor.

Wow like you're totally my hero n sh!t dude. I'm sure that just because YOU need Windows to run some stupid "production control software" program doesn't mean that everyone the world over will immediately drop their Android/iOS tablets!

Guess what? AMD is nowhere to be seen in Ultrabooks. They are nowhere to be seen in smartphones/tablets. Why coz uncle fagget Read wants to see market penentration if these things are selling well or not or they'll go bankrupt & he will be fired! Basically meaning no one will hire uncle fagget again Lenovo kicked him out on sexual harrasment charges against other male co-workers. OFC AMD has no problem like this coz they have an entire FagTroll army over here posting comments & scattered over the world. But one day Colonel Jerry Sanders will rise from the ashes & destroy all the fagtrolls & uncle fagget & put AMD right in the hands of Samsung where they belong & Col.Sanders will go back home 3x richer :lol:

They aren't selling well so maybe they don't care yet?
