Tablets Expected to Outsell PCs

Tablets Expected to Outsell PCs

This isn’t actually surprising, because upgrading a tablet purchased one year ago will yield a more significant performance boost than would upgrading a computer purchased five years ago.

Other than for computationally intensive applications (these days, almost all GPU based stuff; gaming, massive data crunching, cracking passwords, etc.), modern computers do not want for power in meaningful ways.

And while new form-factors are superb for a range of consumptive applications, the PC continues to be essentially the only viable means of production in the electronic sphere. Presumably typing will be supplanted in the relatively short-term, but that day remains over the horizon.
