The last month of Q4(2015) saw some positive sign in PC sales but that was because of holiday season in many countries. There was a total of 10.6% of decline compared to the sales of 2014. This simply means that PC business is no more the safe business and many PC manufacturers are moving towards mobile computing. Asus, HP, Acer etc have already entered into the mobile market with their smartphones. Asus has got great success in smartphone business & also became world’s manufacturer to provide a mobile phone with 4GB of RAM.
