Currently, some companies making hardware are in crisis because of the so-called post-PC era. After all, this term may well be compared to an invisible hand, because everyone thinks that this era has arrived, but no one admits to it – doesn’t seem that gamers, graphic designers, programmers, and designers suddenly have thrown out their loved machines through the windows and instantly ran away to the closest shop to buy a mobile device. Handheld market, despite the ever-increasing popularity currently poses no threat to the computer segment. After all the great experts proclaim that fewer PCs are being sold, and consumers are increasingly willing to reach for mobile solutions, however, this type of reality formed for a completely different reason – the computer market simply saturated. Regular users who do not play computer games every day can confidently use the several years old machine and do not feel the need to update.
We replace phones and tablets more often, thus the increasing statistics do not necessarily have to say that the PC era has already ended. Companies engaged in selling computers, including Hewlett Packard are also affected by the saturation of the market and were compelled to carry major restructuring in their ranks. HP is said to be divided into two separate companies.
One of them will be responsible for providing services and equipment to the business market, the other will be responsible for the production of PCs and printers. According to official information, the change was dictated precisely by the post-PC era, but we suspect that the motives of the decision were entirely different. Will HP come out for good? As you know, the market and consumers will verify everything with time. At the moment it is not known what the new company will be called and when will the final division of HP happen.
