The rise in cloud computing has driven the need for more mass storage devices that the company makes. A great dividend doesn't hurt either.

Current lofty gross margin is not sustainable. Historical average HDD gross margin is in the teens. Reason for such high margin is due to the flood in Thailand last year resulting in severe undersupply. OEMs had no choice but to sign long term… More

Before, DVD & Blu-Ray, DVD & VHS, LCD & plasma & CRT, VHS & LD (Laser Disc), VHS & Beta, cassette & eight tracks there were PCs (personal computers, microcomputers or home computers) it's least known because it involved some households. As PCs began entering American homes between 1977 to 1982, the industry big names were Texas Instruments, Tandy (Radio Shack), IBM (International Business Machines), Commodore, Atari, Apple and etc. PCs during this stage are still priced out of reach for a lot of households even with industry exhaustive efforts in making PCs affordable, thankfully during this period in America there were plenty of privileged middle class American households in America to have over six computer manufacturers competing for their businesses. In the beginning of the PC era there was no universal standard each PC manufacturer had their own operating system, program language, hardware architecture, etc. Asides of spending a large chunk of annual income on PC, peripherals, software, and necessary accessories to get the PC running, the owner is now fully committed to that brand because software is not compatible and hardware is not interchangeable across all brands. PCs being in its infancy the concern was not really about potential quality issues but steady supply of new software titles being available for all PC platforms that software writers may not be able keep up with all brands, which some PC brands did get neglected and the worst nightmare is when a PC brand becomes orphaned.

Like all other businesses it's said that the first five years will determine if it's a success or a failure, from 1977-1982 the computer manufacturers success varied by how they defined success. It was the start of 1983 and computer manufacturers have released or are launching their next generation PCs on their platform and Texas Instruments, Tandy (Radio Shack), Commodore, Atari and etc. also introduced IBM PC compatible computers too except for Apple which stayed with its platform. When IBM PC was introduced in 1981 it became de facto standard for computer manufacturers as mentioned before including Compaq, Hewlett Packard and others producing IBM compatible computers or better known as IBM clones, PC clones, or IBM PC clones, etc. this started an era from 1982-2005 of look alike desktop off white to beige PCs on A-IO design (all In One) pizza box form factor case with Microsoft operating system computers. Though IBM dominated Apple through the years, Apple survived and thrived in a niche market, Texas Instruments pulled out of the computer business in March 1984, Commodore went defunct in May 6,1994, Atari went defunct in July 30,1996 and Tandy (Radio Shack) was acquired by AST Computer in July 1,1993 and then AST Computer went defunct February 28,2001. There is no doubt that IBM compatibility extended the existence of the early microcomputer computer manufacturers while simultaneously building their brand and platform.

In the early 2000's the computers that were available at big box stores where I resided are the American computers Compaq, Dell, eMachines, Gateway, HP, and IBM, Chinese computer Lenovo, Japanese computers Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba, South Korean computers LG, and Samsung and Taiwanese computers Acer and Asus. Back in the 2000's we had a lot of computer specialty shops where we could order computer brands and models that weren't available in any brick and mortar stores. By the end of 2000's Compaq was acquired by HP, eMachines was acquired by Gateway, Gateway was acquired by Acer, IBM was acquired by Lenovo. Panasonic, Sony, and Toshiba abandoned the North American market and so did LG and Samsung in the PC segment. Today at our big box stores the choices are American computers Dell and HP, Chinese Lenovo, Taiwanese Acer and Asus. Due to CHIPS & Science Act signed into law on August 9, 2022 who knows how much longer China and maybe Taiwan will be in American markets.

The hardware components that go into desktop computers is a main circuit board (aka motherboard). On the motherboard is a chipset (manages electronic components) on single or additional integrated circuits that directs the data flow linking the processor, memory, and peripherals. A socket for the CPU (Central Processing Unit), slot for RAM modules (Random Access Memory), PCI-e slots (peripheral component interconnect express) for GPU graphics cards (Graphics Processing Unit) RAID card controller SSD (Solid State Drives) or HDD (Hard Disk Drives), Video Card, Sound Card, Ethernet Card, TV Turner Card, Interface Card, Accelerator Card, and other expansion cards. SATA Ports (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) to connect mass storage devices HDD (Hard Disk Drives), Optical Drives, and SSD (Solid State Drives), M.2 Slots SSD (Solid State Drives) internally mounted storage expansion cards, network adapter wifi, and Bluetooth, USB ports for computer peripherals examples keyboard and mouse, display connectors for monitors, Audio Jacks for speakers or ear phones, ethernet ports for connecting network fans for cooling , PSU (Power Supply Unit) to power unit, and etc. enclosed in a desktop case.
