Most of them bought only the XL itself (some of them bought software with it). The people bought Xl are various types of people of course men, group of young business women, couples, married couples, parents and children. A reason why they bought was that it has a bigger screen. A lot of people didn't like small screen, because it's not eyes friendly. One old lady was struggling doing internet with PC and gave up using it, but her granddaughter told her that XL has bigger screen and is internet useable, so she came to shop and bought it. Old lady said "I can use my brain again!!"
