Hint: it didn’t. Wilbur explains:
Yeah. Microsoft’s Surface reinvented the PC. One could argue that where traditional Windows PC makers were barely breaking even, Microsoft came along and reinvented everything by losing big money. But that’s not what reinvented really means.
So, notebook tablet hybrids are the reinvented PCs?
Microsoft Surface sales pushed close to a billion dollars a quarter four years ago, and after a year of dropping sales, seems to have rebounded with the rest of the PC industry with slightly more than a billion in quarterly sales this year.
Or, put another way, about 1/10th the sales of Mac and iPad.
