Dell and Lenovo are preparing well to counter heavy shopping rush in coming holiday season. With ‘Thanksgiving’ and Christmas season fast approaching, these two leaders of computing business are eager to offer hot deals to their patrons.
Already, Dell is offering 32 inches free Samsung LED TV for those who are buying its Alienware Gaming laptops and Lenovo is sure to follow with one such lucrative promotion early next month.
Now coming to the main topic, as per our sources, the demand for Windows 7 and Windows 8 laptops is said to be high these days.
A selling source from Lenovo has confirmed this news and stated that the demand for the two old Microsoft operating system (Win 7 & 8/8.1) is higher than the newly released Windows 10.
The truth is that Windows 10 OS is filled with lot of mysteries and controversies for now and a lot of softwares and hardware still do not support it on a complete note.
For this reason, PC buyers are showing more interest in going for Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 laptops which are eligible for a free Windows 10 upgrade from Microsoft.
The emphasis for the PC users at present is more on security, reliability and support and so they are interested in buying the Windows 7 and Windows 8 OS preloaded systems than Windows 10.
Due to this smart buying trend, Pc manufactures like Dell and Lenovo are pricing the PCs having Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 at a high rate and have slashed the prices of Windows 10 preloaded systems by a considerable margin.
If we go carefully through Dell PC range available online, a basic laptop with Intel i3 intelligence is available for $550 with Win 7/8 OS. Whereas, the same configuration laptop with Win 10 home OS is available in between $300-$400 range.
That clearly specifies the ongoing shopping trend of the laptop and PC buyers and that is where the OEMs are making profits.
It is basic rule of thumb in business and that is to jack up the prices of products which are on high demand and to lower the cost of those products which are in less demand.
However, a source from Amazon, who has been selling Windows loaded laptops from many years, defies this selling strategy. She feels that Microsoft wants to push its Windows 10 OS as so is encouraging OEMs to sell Win 10 loaded laptops at less price through out the world.
Here, the strategy is simple-If the product becomes dearer, users start looking at alternatives and this is where Windows 10 will come as a savior.
The source, who likes to be anonymous, said that slowly and steadily Microsoft is also clearing all the controversies which are marring its newly released Windows 10 and within few months, it will succeed in winning the trust and confidence of its global users.
