“These results were driven by solid demand from corporate customers,
I wonder if the fact that corporate entities are now considering upgrading to win7 from XP is driving any sales of "better" hardware? When you consider the age of most corporate hardware (I'd suspect 5+ years) compared to advances in power savings on current hardware, that's gotta be a driving force as well.

Businesses were also waiting for the economy to turn around a bit and delayed purchases. I wonder if there was any pent-up demand for new equipment?

There was a temporary bump up in the percentage businesses were allowed to write off in one year as part of an economy stimulation plan. Years ago computer hardware used to be a 33% depreciation rate, and software was 50%. IIRC they bumped both up significantly to attract businesses into spending some capital.

Back OT, I was surprised to see that the average price of processors sold had increased year over year. Maybe due to the increase in business server sales?
