Microsoft Corporation (MSFT), Intel Corporation (INTC): Will 2014 Be the Year of the PC?

Plenty of fight left

Thanks to pent-up demand, compelling processor technology, and a little help from our old pal, Mr. Softy, 2014 may prove to be the year of the PC. Between these factors, I think we’ll begin to see an improvement in PC shipments over the coming quarters. The billion-dollar question is if it’s temporary, or it’s the start of a shift back toward the PC side of things. I suppose the answer depends on just how strong the structural shift is to mobile computing and if Intel has given PC makers the right tools to excite users again.

The article Will 2014 Be the Year of the PC? originally appeared on and is written by Steve Heller.
