PC Market Dead? Not For Gaming, Razer Says

While a decline is believable, I’m not too sure about the part where Razer thinks there will be a "Razer Blade Stealth in every Starbucks, in every office, in every home."

"The decline in the PC market is primarily attributable to the fact that tablets do a lot of the same things that people use PCs for, particularly casual use," says Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities. But you can't substitute a tablet for workspace computing or gaming, he points out. In fact, gaming on PCs is on the rise, a trend reflected in the recent quarterly report of Nvidia. The graphics chipmaker reported a jump in profits, boosted by demand for its gaming-focused products.
