Motherboard Sales Slide Ahead Of Vista

Sales of motherboards used in desktop PCs continue to decline ahead of the launch of Windows Vista OS, a sign that could foretell bargains for users in coming months. Slowing demand from PC users ahead of the launch of Vista is the main culprit for falling motherboard sales, while shortages of key components such as low-end microprocessors are also a factor. October shipments will likely dive 6 percent compared to September, and shipments will drop further in November, King predicts. Fourth quarter shipments overall should limp by with 5 percent growth, compared to normal growth of up to 19 percent.
