Tablet takeover? AMD survey says not so fast.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, September 15, 2014

When it comes to computing…the tablet takeover may be fizzling out.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Tablets replacing notebook computers?   Well, that seemed to be the trend not too long ago.   But according to a Back to School survey conducted the Harris Poll for chipmaker AMD…56 percent of college students prefer laptops.   Marketing Director Gabe Gravning…

“Students that are going back to school really think about their laptop as being the device that they do many things.  So, for example, from their term papers and studying to also being a primary entertainment device.  Most of the time they’re using their laptop or even other devices for entertainment and TV watching.”

Gravning points out that the typical college freshman today has never known life without a computer.   With many PCs four or more years old…many are or will be upgrading..and for students, price is a big concern.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
