Not sure where their numbers are coming from but PC have become more reliable so most update only the O/S not the hardware. And only Gamers have a more pressing need then everyday users.
â€œIn emerging markets, PC penetration is low, but consumers are not keen to own PCs. Consumers in emerging markets primarily use smartphones or phablets for their computing needs, and they donâ€™t find the need to use a PC as much as consumers in mature marketsâ€, she added.
This is partial true but most forget the apps you use are still created on a PC system without the PC forget your apps as well. All the software you use and internet wifi are still run through PC - they only realize this when those system goes down and ask why doesn't my apps and wifi work. This is the short sightness of app and wifi users forget. Under all that fun apps are a PC running those so they can use their apps.
