re: Intel expects growth in 2013

One of the really nice things about tablets is that they address two markets that have never been very well covered by traditional PCs and laptops. It's the light-weight users; people who primarily consume media. If all a user does is watch movies, browse the Internet and email/Twitter/Facebook people, a traditional PC/laptop is way overpowered and far too complex. The second market is as a low-cost second PC. The traditional big PC/laptop can be used for heavy lifting while the tablet can be the more casual, truly portable and easy to use device for less taxing uses. I look at it as a pick-up truck or SUV (desktop PC) or high-end sports car (laptop) vs. an inexpensive economy car (tablet). To a small extent, all three do compete with each other, but only at the common denominator level. They all can move people around, but are optimized for specific purposes. The PC/Laptop/Tablet world is the same. Thee only reason everyone had a big computer a few years ago was because tablets didn't exist. Those folks were never really full-size PC customers.

Remember when Grove said it was PC vs. TV. Now it's gonna be phone vs. PC. Office work on phone is a new, real possibility.

Intel will retain it's high percentage of chip sets in PCs and will start to make inroads into mobile (phones and tablets). I also think that as prices come down on ultra books and non ultra book, but still fast and light laptops, PC growth will expand somewhat this year. So yes I can see some growth ahead for Intel.

Growth from what? From forcing PC manufacturers to integrate the McAfee antivirus with their "ultrabooks", and other such nonsense as desperate ways to make money?

it would need a guy outside of intel's circle and culture to start shifting the gears in the company, it takes guts and perseverance. my 2 cents, would be to drop the giant ego and start working with smaller companies where real innovation happens, after all necessity is the mother of invention.

Not to mention how TSMC gets Intel to do its R&D by hiring away their engineers at high salaries, effectively stealing Intel IP in the process (good luck proving IP theft against TSMC in Taiwan.

Intel is now getting a net margin of 20 % but TSMC is up there with 32 %. How is a Foundry able to maintain so much higher margin compared to the leading IDM in the world ? Can't be all due to Intel's higher manpower & R&D costs

"Intel also plans to start building the industry's first 14-nm chips toward the end of this year, Otellini said." Wow, it really does look like a delayed ramp.
