Motif of the Week: The Tablet’s Grip Is Tightening at Home

12 October 2015 in Trading Ideas

Have you bought your last desktop? Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks many consumers are prepared to say good-bye to their PCs and Macs as we shift away from computers. Think about it: at home, how many of us don’t need much more than the ability to check Facebook, send emails and stream TV shows and movies on a decent-sized screen?

That’s one reason that 212 million tablets are expected to ship worldwide in 2015. Meanwhile, last week Microsoft garnered ooh’s and aah’s when it unveiled its new Surface Book laptop – or should we say, tablet: the detachable screen had tech pundits predicting that a real rival to Apple’s MacBook Pro has arrived.

With a potential new tablet line up battle happening through the holidays, it’s not too early to make Tablet Takeover our Motif of the Week. Beginning today through Friday, October 16, you can trade this motif, commission-free.
