Recently, with the release of tablets, laptop sales have been projected to lose a significant amount of growth in the next 5 years. This new surge of popularity for iPads and other tablets has lead to a decrease of general laptop sales, reducing the sales increase from 15.9% to 10.5%. Mainly, we see a change in consumer preferences, technology-wise, tablets are continually getting more popular as a replacement for portable computing devices, because of this, the market is moving more towards tablets and growth will begin to decline for laptops. I have modeled the changes as such, which in my opinion, accurately portray the situation.
