Iphone, Ipad, Laptop, and desktop. Each provides an optimum service area and some overlap. Which one would I do without? Try editing photos, dealing with a terrabite folder full of photos, composing a substantial communication with graphics, managing the home finances, on a cell phone. Try dragging your laptop out to read or watch a movie on the plane or lounging on the beach. Try finding a nearby health care when you have pneumonia on vacation. Map stuff without the pad is hard. My put? You need all three tools to manage a normal household, and the desktop if you want to do anything resembling serious labor.

I would mention the Steve Job's lack in Apple is leading it to a decline, but this holds for 2013 reportage

How common - a comment hastily/haphazardly written on a smart(dumb)phone.

@bogdanbm, very valid point. Cloud eventually consists of servers and desktops. So PC will still exist even if the end user adopts smartphones/tablets instead of laptop/desktop.
