PCs Roar Back To Life

I'm not sure if it's Windows 7, record low computer prices or an economy just starting to get back on track, but PC sales rose nearly 25 percent in the first quarter compared to a year ago. That equates to nearly 80 million PCs sold worldwide in a short three months.

Analyst firm IDC attributes much of the growth to long delayed refreshes that are now back on track.

What about you? Is your shop refreshing key tools or still holding the line on costs? Tell me what you think at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
