Looking to buy a new computer anytime soon? This may be the best time since the start of COVID, and the best for some time to come. Worldwide PC shipments have been dropping for a year by double digits each quarter. Further, inventory is still huge in an industry that also needs to keep pace with driving tech. There are other factors, like inflation and supply chain that will mess with specific choices, but bargains are out there. Be careful, and do your homework, but there are some nice deals to be had. Know that in about a year, people will be moving to replace their systems bought in 2020 when the market was seriously tight, and prices will drive up again.

New computers, especially laptops, were difficult to find in 2020 as millions of people switched to working from home. That spike in sales numbers has long since passed, which might be good news for you.
