Maybe saying a Laptop is a dinosaur is going too far, but mobility and immediacy will trump quality of experience more often than not. Further, for data to settle arguments like MLB facts, a mobile device with a 4inch screen is the weapon of choice. I use my laptop less because I have a mobile device and my desktop is nothing more than data storage and backup.

"Laptop dinosaurs?" To compare the web browsing experience of a 4 inch screen to a 20 inch screen is silly. This is particularly for looking at baseball statistics, etc. Mobile makers as well as websites would like to have an app for every device/website combo. Or pay a small fee. No thank you, not if I can help it. With all the IP flack going around between microsoft, motorola, and apple, it's nice to have the Android keeping everyone "honest." It's funny how I do have a tendency to do quick checks from my phone, since it's always with me... But laptops won't go away any time soon, as was implied above.
