HP’s revamped All-in-Ones: designed for kids, but biz-worthy, too

Peter Krass's picture

All-in-One PCs don’t get enough respect. Their design is clever, combining the compact footprint of a notebook with the large display size of a desktop.

That should make AiO systems ideal for your business customers who need a large, sharp display, but don’t want — or have room for — the clutter and cables of a desktop.

These customers could include a medical office that needs a PC in every examining room. A bike shop that wants to show customers more options in an online catalog. Or an administrative office where space is tight.

SMBs forecast to spend a bit more than expected on IT

Good news: IDC just raised its estimate for IT spending by small and midsize businesses.

The market watcher now expects worldwide SMB spending on IT to reach $568 billion this year. The United States alone should account for $171.3 billion, IDC says, for about 30 percent of the total.

And by 2021, the market watcher predicts, worldwide SMB spending on IT will top $676 billion. If so, that would mark a compound average growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5 percent.

Wondering how strong the cloud is? Plenty strong, if you go by Microsoft’s fourth-quarter financial results, released today after the markets closed.

Is your PC business weak? Join the club. Microsoft’s is flat, as well.

“I’m proud of the results, especially our commercial cloud results,” said Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, during a conference call this evening with investors.

Like the last day of a summer cold, the PC market is bad, but not as bad as it was.

According to a new report from market watcher IDC, worldwide PC shipments in the second quarter of this year totaled 60.5 million units. That’s a year-on-year decline of 3.3 percent. Not good, but better than IDC’s earlier estimate of 3.9 percent.

“The global PC market has continued to trend toward stabilization,” said Jay Chou, a research manager at IDC.
