Interesting to know that touch-screen tablets are not completely replacing the home PC and this is good news for companies like Intel which is relying heavily on sales of PC.

I think this trend is going to continue for the tabs. I would also prefer Tabs over laptops for portability, but for heavy weight tasks, I would prefer to buy a PC instead.

This report is somewhat different from the report titled "PC market lifted by iPad demand, says analyst". Looking back, I think netbook is not a very good product to begin with. It is like a regular laptop but less powerful. It aims at simple tasks such as web browser, movie watching and occasional word processing. The first 2 tasks can be accomplished through a tablet. Yet, word processing and working on spreadsheet are still somewhat a challenge on a tablet. It doesn't mean working on a netbook would be a lot easier. That's the reason I believe network wasn't designed correctly. However, it does open up a low cost computer market, allowing less fortunate students to have access to personal computer. There is no doubt netbook market will continue shrinking for various reason. Will it totally disappear from the market? Well! Only future can tell.
