Windows XP end-of-support boosting PC demand: Citi
Microsoft's decision to end its support to the decade-plus-old Windows XP operating system is reportedly driving up sales of PC in the US and other mature markets, a new report by Citi has revealed.
Citi Research revealed that the end-of-support for Windows XP has triggered an uptick in corporate PC demand in the fourth quarter in Western Europe and Japan apart from the US, compared to the previous quarter.
It was found that the sudden increase in demand was partly attributed to corporate customers upgrading their hardware, along with an OS upgrade, ahead of the Win XP expiration on April 8, Cnet reports.
However, Citi cautioned that as much of the tablet growth is expected to come from emerging markets, the benefits of Intel's Bay Trail processor and Windows 8.1 would be insufficient to spur growth for overall PCs near-term, the report added.
