Windows® 7 launch set to boost hardware buys, says Intel®
Intel Corp is hoping that the launch of Microsoft's new Windows 7 operating system will push corporate buyers to switch hardware in the coming year. This was disclosed by a company executive. With the new Windows 7 making a robust entry, it will be a factor in corporate computer purchasing. PC market is expected to start moving. Microsoft, whose software holds more than 90 percent of personal computers worldwide, eventually released Windows 7 on October 22, with a hope to woo back customers disappointed by its previous Vista version. Windows 7, until now, is mainly seen in the consumer segment.
Morgan Stanley put a halt over growing optimism among investors and executives that a push in corporate and consumer spending would accelerate chip sales adding that revenue growth could peak in early 2010. Analysts also add that U.S. unemployment, already touching and going beyond 10 percent, would sink consumer sentiment. It is also believed that the load of computers at companies may actually be fresher than four to five years old.
However there were streaks of optimism about a corporate inventory refresh cycle. These cycles cannot be predicted perfectly, but there was a big one in 1999 with the Y2K and the dotcom burst. However in the consumer segment unemployment was not necessarily a dampening factor for computer sales. But it is a harsh reality and there is the need for consumer computers which is increasing. There is a lot of retraining and job-seeking going on every where, people have to be able to deploy 21st-century skills to compete for jobs. It is also observed that sales in emerging economies, particularly in China and in Latin America are growing consistently. Around the same time, the government purchases of computers for education around the world have gone over 20 percent.
