IMO the fall of PC will be at a much exponential pace than what is in table 2. As mobile CPUs get more and more powerful, they can simply do almost all the tasks of a regular PC. All you need is a dock/monitor/keyboard to convert your smartphone to a full blown dekstop pc. Checkout Ubuntu OS for Android. http://www.ubuntu.com/phone/ubuntu-for-android

Yes, I see this like you. And Instead of being someone to buy expensive software tools, we will use them as a service in the browser.

I think this makes it pretty clear that PCs were powerful enough for most uses about a decade ago, though not yet portable enough. Much of what has been added since then has been valuable to a small number of users, but wasteful bloat to large numbers of users. The tablet people are simply buying an amount of computing power much more appropriate to their needs. The compromises, such as no keyboard, are small enough to be greatly overshadowed by the added utility that comes with portability and long battery life.

Once upon a time (like two years ago) we wondered if tablets would canabalize notebooks which were still growing at a decent pace. Turns out this shift is coming harder and faster than anyone expected. Intel's new CEO has his work cut out for him!

In addition to trying hard to get into mobile market, Intel seemingly is developing a efficient and powerful processor for server. This will guarantee Intel products still be around our life. No matter what cloud service we choose, Intel processors are still serving you. ;)

One of the most surprising statements is the claim that in all but the smallest organizations, 25% of employees have purchased the primary PC they use for work. One could infer that no employee would voluntarily do that unless his employer failed to provide the PC necessary for the employee to do his job. One out of 4 seems to me an unbelievably high number of employees that are bringing their own computers to the office.

Frank, add to that statistic the fact that in about 20% of organizations employees are not allowed to use their own computers for work for security reasons. But this is no more surprising than the fact that most of use also use our own cars for work.

Why would the 2017 prediction include percentage growth of small screen tablets? Isn't that space well covered by smart phones? I'd think the market would be greatest for screen sizes from 8" up to 14" diagonal (the size of a standard sheet of paper) which is easily carried, and provides enough viewing space to avoid being redundant with a SmartPhone.
