The Defining PC Battle of 2012


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which developer Chris Bledsoe and senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Eric asks Chris about reports that ARM chips are running stably on Windows 8. The processor battle has become an interesting battleground as ARM Holdings and Intel both attack each other's strengths. In ARM's case, it's pushing into PCs while Intel pushes into ARM's mobile stronghold. Eric says investors need to pay attention to the idea of attacking the strength of your competitor. While PC sales might not move the revenue needle much for ARM this year, it keeps the pressure on Intel to devote more resources back to its PC unit and the low-end threat ARM creates.

Both Intel and ARM are central players in the mobile revolution shaping the very foundation of technology. However, they're both just one way to play the trend. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market.
