So, with HP getting out of the PC business and Apple claiming that we are in a post-PC era, is the PC dead?
In my opinion it is not. I believe that the term PC is defined as a tower that sits under our desk. However, I also believe that this is not the case. Let’s face it, most of the devices that we own are in fact PCs. Macs are PCs, smartphones are PCs, tablets are PCs. Little do we know it, some of us in one way or another own a PC. Why do I say this?
It’s because a lot of the mobile devices(smartphones, tablets, and laptops etc) allow us to carry out tasks that desktop computers do equally as well.
We are able to go on the internet, shop, read the news, customise the desktop background to our desire, run and install the apps we want to. most of the devices that we own can be personalised. I am sorry, but to say that the PC is dead is just wrong. Better yet, to say that we are living in a “post-PC” era is completely wrong.
However, we can say that the PC is not only a tower that sits under a desk, but it is also the phone in your pocket, your laptop, your netbook or your tablet.
