Dell laptops and tablets are increasingly getting cheaper and less expensive, and the trend is even accelerating in the mobile sector.
But the latest research from research firm IDC shows the market for these devices has a long way to go to catch up.
In fact, the median price of a laptop has fallen by almost $100 since its peak in the early 2000s.
The IDC report on laptop pricing found that the median prices of desktop and laptop computers have declined by roughly $300 since the beginning of the year.
That’s an 18% drop, and IDC says the median purchase price of those products dropped by nearly $800.
That drop in the market has come amid an uptick in smartphone prices, particularly in the US.
That increase in smartphone price is driving some buyers to upgrade their existing devices to premium offerings that offer even better specs and value.
