Are customers fleeing from PCs?

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, Jeff Fischer, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the guys talk about three tech giants, Dell (DELL.DL), Microsoft (MSFT -0.37%) and Intel (INTC -0.80%), and the painful trend that would have been shocking 10 years ago: a steady bleeding departure of customers from the PC. We hear about how high product prices and increased competition are sending customers packing for attractive new alternatives to the PC, and how these companies are suffering as a result.
