An article referring to the Gartner study on the slowdown of PC sales :
“In addition to relatively high market penetration and a ‘good-enough’ computing experience with existing PCs, consumers are being more cautious with their purchases and competing devices have been vying for consumer dollars. This situation is likely to persist in 2011, if not worsen, as a wave of Media Tablets could put a dent in the traditional PC market,” Daoud said.
Reflect to yourself : If you are planning to replace your PC, do you have the intention to replace it with a Tablet, notebook or again a PC ?
Looking at the Dell chart, 2011 might become a difficult year.

- The 50d MA crossed the 200dMA as a Golden cross in the beginning of december, but is since then flirting with it. Doesn’t really give me positive signs.
