    Saturation ? or just lack of upgrade benefit ?

    PC's (and tablets for that matter) reached a performance level that is "good enough" for most uses, so upgrading has become less imperative.
    Apart from move from HDD to SSDs, the times of a new PC being a massive boost have long gone.

    Phones are beginning to be at that stage too - but battery degradation and OS upgrades force you to keep upgrading them.
