I agree. The tablet will take over a lot of the "fun" stuff of computing, but the laptop will still be there for the serious work.

maybe a it's better to compare x86 cpu vs. Non-x86 cpu machines. I can see if a notebook equiped with a ARM cpu will cost same/lower as a tablet and similar function.

I actually have no problem believing this, because the tablet, a la iPad or Kindle Fire, is more of a consumer toy. Whereas the notebook is a PC, more of a real productivity tool. So why wouldn't a consumer toy outpace the sales of a more flexible and more useful device like a PC? Since these are significantly different products, the comparison seems wrong. But on the other hand, as others have noted, new devices like the Microsoft Surface would blur the lines.

I think this could easily happen given products like the recently introduced Google tablet at such low price points.

I'm not sure I buy this. Despite being a consumer product I am not sure tablets will grow quite this quickly. I expect they could outpace notebooks someday, but I'd put another 3-5 years in there.

Is Surface defined as a tablet or a PC?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
