I A world where smartphones act like computers, you could be inclined to think that all the love for laptops is lost. Quite the opposite. More than 161 million laptops were purchased online last year and the portable PC is still many people’s electronic device of choice. That’s why you’re reading this, after all.
The cultural shift towards smaller devices has affected sales, of course, and is likely to change manufacturers’ approach to Black Friday 2018 – tomorrow, November 23-in a very positive way for consumers.
As fewer laptops are shipped each year, the competition to be the best in a smaller pool increases, which means there’s scope for some serious offers as this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales start to heat up. We’re probably going to see price cuts like never before.
