IDC's 2014 Consumer Devices Survey: PC Purchase Intent
This IDC Insight discusses the results of IDC's 2014 Consumer Devices Survey related to PC purchase intent. Fielded online in June 2014, the survey asked participants about their current PC, tablet, and smartphone ownership and usage as well as future purchase plans for each device category. We conducted the survey in five countries — the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, India, and China — receiving a total of 4,364 responses.
Questions were asked regarding respondents' usage relationships between PCs, tablets, and smartphones as well as their purchase of accessories for desktop PCs, notebook PCs, and tablets. Each respondent was then polled regarding additional questions related to one of the product categories he/she intended to make a purchase within the following six months.
