Expect continued improvements on mobile devices like tablets and smart phones as the tech industry incorporates more functions typically found in computers being done by them. What does this mean for the consumer? Well, don’t expect red hot deals on the iPad or its’ clones although prices have come down; however, do expect better than average deals on a new computer.
For instance, this week Walmart has a deal on an netbook by Acer for $228. Remember when netbooks first came out a few years back selling in excess of $500? Now the prices are cut in half, lighter, with a better keyboard and more memory–in comparison to tablets about half of the price. Need portability? Then consider a netbook and wait until tablets come down comparably in price.
Great gift for the family member on the go!
