Computer Prices on the Rise?

Anyone hoping to get their child a computer for Christmas this year, I suggest you get it fast. And if you were waiting for after Christmas Sales, well that might not be such a good idea. If your business is running on older computers, think hard about replacing them soon. Costs are going to go up.  An Intel factory in Thailand was hit by massive floods causing a shortage of hard drives. Intel is still predicting their sales will be considerably high despite the shortage:

“The world’s largest microchip maker said it continues to forecast that personal computer sales will grow this quarter. But PC makers are reducing their inventories of desktops and laptops, because they’re having a difficult time finding hard drives to put in their computers. As the manufacturers reduce their PC stockpiles, they’re scaling back their semiconductor purchases from Intel.”

Although they are claiming that they expect to bring in 13 to 14 billion this year, their stocks have already dropped 4%.
