Intel reported 500 million PCs have been purchased within the past five years. This number is exceedingly low, considering 1 billion android phones were sold in 2014 alone. While it’s common to upgrade or replace a smartphone annually, computers are hardly ever rotated more than once every three to four years.
To boost PC sales and increase overall awareness of a PC’s capabilities, manufacturers have created a new campaign titled “PC Does What?” to showcase new design and battery improvements, as well as other impressive features added to new PC devices. This campaign will run in China and the U.S. and details the benefits and capabilities of a specific device from each company.
PC adoption rate may be slowing, but the need for new computer devices will never disappear. Once an old device has reached the end of its lifecycle, users can pair with a certified electronics refurbishment company to ensure devices are put to their best use or recycled to their best ability.
HOBI International is an R2, RIOS, ISO 14001 certified electronics recycling and refurbishment company with locations in Batavia, IL, Dallas and Phoenix. HOBI provides the best practices for electronics repurposing once devices have seen the end of their use.
