Apple “iSlate” Tablet PC: Survey results show demand

As you are probably aware the Apple Tablet/iSlate will almost definitely be unveiled at an Apple event on January 27th, a recent survey on ChangeWaveResearch suggests that their is currently a lot of demand for the device.

At the moment demand for laptops is higher than it has been in a long time, the closest demand we have seen to today’s figures occurred in January 2008.

There are a lot of reasons for the success of laptops at the moment, personally I feel that there is a great combination of long battery life, high-performance and a solid OS (Windows 7) which makes laptops extremely popular, therefore whereas people would purchase desktops for their performance in previous years, now you can get everything you want at a fair price with a laptop.

This high-demand for laptops may also result in there being high-demand for Apple’s iSlate/Tablet, however I feel pricing is key. Another survey looked at Apple Tablet pre-launch demand, when respondents were asked ” if they’ll buy an ‘iSlate’ if-and-when it becomes available”, 4 percent of people said they were ‘very likely’, whereas 14 percent said they were ‘somewhat likely’, to see all of the related surveys check out this link.
