@iniewski, There are few useful things I can do with my smartphone on the go, email, gps, watch videos,read, play games, But for doing any real high perf. work, I need a PC, with monitors (and back ground servers crunching the code or analysis) . I still like PC to multitask, listen to music and still work, and do lot other things, tablets and phones can't do yet.

Some people need PCs for their work, but we are becoming a minority. I'm seeing more and more tablets and other smaller mobile devices being creatively deployed in all sorts of work settings. PC replacement schedules seem to be lengthening as time goes on. That's why the PC industry just had a negative quarter. It sure seems like a longer term trend to me.

you need a PC or a T+PC hybrid to do the work! unless your work is tweeting and emailing

I think the point is that PCs moderate growth is gone -- very likely forever. From now on it will be only low growth at best but most probably a long decline -- except for hybrids (T+PC) which are mophing into a new form-factor for laptops Once again we should be collectively thankful to Jobs ad Apple for breaking up the mold and help us all

Well, some people need PCs to do some work, it's not all tablet entertainment...the EE Times community should understand this point the best...let's take a poll: who can do any useful work on a tablet? or on a smartphone?
