    Well, not for me for now. Personally, I’m quite a hardcore gamer mentality. As a result, PC is the best. Unless one day Tablet can have a very good and realistic graphic processing, then I think Tablet will win this war. So far, I can see Tablets and Smart Phones over taking casual games, but not the others. I will still not ditch my PC as long as the gaming passion is there :)

    No, I am not ready to throw my desktop as it is too important for me. I don’t have a tablet and I don’t want to have an iPhone as I don’t see the point carrying any of these devices with me as I am afraid of losing my personal space and life

    I don’t think the PC of today is analogous to the typewriter of yesterday. A PC and printer could do everything a typewriter did, only better – with the exception of filling out paper forms (actually because of this, you still find at least one typewriter in many offices).

    Neither a netbook nor a tablet can do everything, or even nearly everything, that a desktop PC can do. Try encoding video, for instance, on your tablet or netbook.

      That is very true Jason, as of yet, tablets aren’t as powerful as desktops, neither are notebooks or laptops…

    Laptops or tablets are definitely good looking and easy to carry but as I am a crazy gamer so I will always prefer desktops over them. It is good that computers have reduced their size with the passing time and people can carry it easily anywhere, but PC has its own place.

      It is the best option I agree Carla, but it’s maybe not the cheapest one!

    PC still have a use. I still can’t see how I would be using a tablet for my programming and designing. Yes laptops can do all this but having the dual and triple monitors is a real help when performing these tasks. So it’s still in my future as long as they keep making them.

    Tablet PCs have been predicted to take over the post PC (desktop and laptop) era. Although desktops and laptops are still going to be around, they are not going to be used they way that it’s being utilized today. Steve Jobs compared them to trucks, which back then are more popular than cars as the popular mode of income was farming. He said that they’re still going to be around, but will not be used as much anymore. I really don’t think they are going to be obsolete.

    I think there’s a place for tablet pc’s, laptops, and desktops. But maybe only people that work in IT would use 2 out of these 3 an a regular basis. I use my tablet pc for surfing the web sitting in front of the TV, and use my desktop for work. I like using a desktop because of a)screen size b)keyboard c)playing music. I don’t think a tablet is good for long term use (I mean sitting with it for hours). I use a computer for about 10 hours most days (work and play) I can see the tablet computer actually doing away with the laptop, but not the desktop..

      Gosh, 10 hours is a lot!
      I know what you mean, they both have advantages and disadvantages, and really it depends as to what you are looking for in your machine.
