I would like to make the US #1 in PC sales, but cannot find a perfect PC at my price.

The Chinese PC market actually is underestimated because there are numerous local vendors that are still assembling computers from off-the-shelf parts then resell them. I do not think these sales are registered in the statistics here.

They also make Iphones there but are not allowed and cannot afford to buy them in China

daleste, you are an idiot. The great thing about you having no money is that someone else does.

The great thing about China being the largest consumer of PCs is that they make them there, so the shipping costs are lower.

Of course this was expected soon, especially in view of economic conditions in the US as well as the cannibalization of PC sales in the US by tablets.

Given the lack of access of PC for majority of people in China and the population of China, China becoming the largest PC market isn't really a surprise. China will likely continue to be for a couple of quarters or even years to come. The question is as the China internal spending grows, the China dependency to American spending shrinks. What will be the impact to US economy and the world economy? What is the next products/ technology that will sustain the growth of the developed countries?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
