Gartner warned that the ongoing trade conflict – and the possibility of imposing tariffs – adds uncertainty to the near-term demand for computers, “although the US-China trade war did not affect the computer market in the second quarter of 2019, But the next phase of tariffs may have a big impact. Most laptops and tablets are currently manufactured in China, and sales of these devices in the United States may face a significant price increase if punitive tariffs are imposed and sellers do not take quick action to respond. ”
