Whether that will change this quarter, when many students (and their parents) will be looking for new laptops for back-to-school, is unknown. One thing is clear is that the introduction of Ultrabooks

Meanwhile, Windows 8, along new Ultrabooks will be released Oct. 26. Will buyers put off spending until then? Or will they decide to keep the PCs they have now and push tablet sales higher?
As for Apple, this report suggests it has a lot of reasons to smile.
