This IDC study provides residual value forecasts and current fair market value data for portable personal computers from tier 1 vendors. This study explains the current market conditions that are affecting the value of used hardware on the secondary market and what future technological changes will further impact these values. We explore the factors impacting the portable PC market, including the uptake of tablet devices and introduction of new types of portables. This information helps those that invest in portable desktop hardware assess their risk and provides guidance on the amount of residual value that is expected to be realized at the end of lease term."IT organizations lease and finance portable PCs to leverage the benefit of being able to accurately manage and forecast the expenses associated with these devices as well as to protect their organizations against hardware obsolescence.As a result, it's important for leasing and financing providers to be aware of important dynamics of the portable PC market as a whole.They need to pay close attention to both what's available now and what will be available in the future in order to maintain profitability." - Kelly Quinn, research manager, IDC's Technology Valuation Strategies.
