Laptops Are being Killed By Tablets

tablet sales beat laptop sales
Laptops sales are down and there are a few reasons for this but mainly because people are buying Tablets now instead of Laptops. Prices for laptops have dropped significantly and are much lower than they were 5 years ago or even last year. Laptop prices have reached near the $300 mark and certainly the economy gets some of the blame as slow sales are forcing discounts. So you get alot more bang for your buck when buying a laptop on the low price end.

But the key reason for the drop in laptop sales is competition, not between laptops and computers, but from Tablets. Consumers are spending their money on Tablet PCs which is delaying their laptop purchases, they are getting their Tablets and putting off buying a Laptop for a later time. And the one Tablet that is causing all this commotion is the Apple iPad. The iPad is dominating Tablet and Laptop sales, it is the Tablet PC that everyone wants. Even HP was forced to drop it's Touchpad Tablet price down to $99 as it was fighting a losing battle against the iPad. Lower prices mean less profit in the pocket of computer makers but it's a steal for consumers.

Getting free used laptops would probably take you a while because you have to go through places such as eBay, Craigslist, and other online sites in which people are giving awayDell Refurbished Laptops OR Used Laptops For Sale that they have already used. There really is no way to get the used laptop at no cost. You can go on eBay and find a used unit for a very low price but the problem that you run into is you have no idea where that laptop has been or what the owner has done with it. For all you know it only has a couple of weeks left before it completely stops working.

That's why you should try and find special offers in which you can get a free laptop that's never been used.

There are a ton of freebies sites out there that are giving away everything from Xbox game consoles to entire personal computer systems. The only problem you'll run into is a lot of these sites are going to want you to give them some sort of compensation. It's not actually money that you're giving them but it will be something else. Probably it will be your time. What I mean by this is that you'll have to spend a lot of time filling out forms and surveys.
