Re: Windows PC delusional players

I imagine that, as with netbooks, Acer dropped Chromebooks when a company from the Seattle area made them an offer they were unable to resist.

Windows isn't failing yet, though. It's just that quite a lot of the people who thought they needed desktop or laptop computers found out that they didn't need them quite that much, or that their old ones worked longer than expected. (I have a 4 year old Asus i7 laptop; it's a bit heavy, the battery life is well below modern standards, but the performance is fine and I only need that performance occasionally, so most of the time I'm using a tablet. If I replace it with a new thin shiny with a long battery life, it will be vanity rather than practicality.)
