L'inévitable évolution des PC

Quel composant informatique a le moins évolué ces dernières années? Face à  cette question, les ordinateurs personnels PC ne peuvent certainement pas se targuer d’avoir été des précurseurs, tout au plus pourrait-on parler de support passif à  l’innovation.

Aujourd’hui, les tablettes commencent à  leur grignoter des parts de marché et le cloud computing prévoit d’ores et déjà  de réorganiser la répartition actuelle entre le système d’exploitation, les applications et le stockage des données.  Face à  ces évolutions, les fabricants d’ordinateurs personnels revoient leur feuille de route

Sur ce sujet, voici une référence à  un article de The Economist qui aborde le réveil de Hewelett-Packard et Dell face à  ces révolutions.

Among the trends the two firms are grappling with is the growing popularity of tablet computers, smartphones and other devices that let consumers work and surf the web on the move. Apple's wildly popular iPad and other tablet offerings are starting to have an impact on low-end laptop sales. Gartner, a research firm, now reckons that global PC shipments will grow 10.5% this year, to 388m units, down from its previous forecast of almost 16%, partly because consumers are switching with such enthusiasm to tablets.

An even more important trend sweeping the industry is the growth of cloud computing. This lets companies store and process vast amounts of data in huge warehouses of servers run by third parties. The data can then be accessed over the internet whenever and wherever needed. New competitors such as Amazon and Rackspace Hosting have jumped into this market and are trying to persuade companies they would be better off renting capacity “in the cloud” than buying their own servers from the likes of Dell and HP. Of course, the cloud-services providers themselves buy lots of servers, mainly Dell and HP ones—but their huge size means they can drive a hard bargain on prices.
