"We can't be optimistic about the PC industry," said Yoshihisa Toyosaki, a Tokyo-based analyst at Architect Grand Design "PC makers' bet on Windows 8 has failed, as cheaper tablet computers are taking away customers."

Dell, on the other hand, has reportedly seen strong demand for their systems running Windows 8. "Fujitsu doesn't plan to join its competitors that are discounting" to sustain sales, Yamamoto said.
