A PC Comeback

Ever since you all told me how much you like Windows 7, I've been predicting healthy holiday PC sales and an overall market resurgence. The highly paid eggheads at Gartner now apparently agree, but see the comeback starting early next year, not at the end of this one.

At first, Gartner gurus predicted a dismal first part of this year, which was actually pretty good. So if they were wrong on this, perhaps they should take a closer look at their projections for 2010.

A big driver for the uptick? Inexpensive netbooks. I expect to be in on this action and hope to snap up a Windows 7 netbook as soon as one's available!
