The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, Jeff Fischer, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the guys talk about three tech giants, Dell (NAS: DELL) , Microsoft (NAS: MSFT) and Intel (NAS: INTC) , and the painful trend that would have been shocking 10 years ago: a steady bleeding departure of customers from the PC. We hear about how high product prices and increased competition are sending customers packing for attractive new alternatives to the PC, and how these companies are suffering as a result.

Intel dominates the PC microprocessor arena. However, that market is maturing and, more and more, Intel is finding itself in a precarious situation for the longer term if it doesn't find new avenues for growth. In this premium research report on Intel, our analyst runs through all of the key topics investors should understand about the chip giant. Better yet, you'll continue to receive updates for an entire year. Click here now to learn more.
