    I think you are Possessor because due to Android operating system we saw many new manufacturers came in the market and launched budget devices that make users to have lower choice on going for desktop or costly laptops. Almost more than 80% cheaper than desktop, tablets offers ample of benefits. In the coming year, desktop/laptop manufacturers will need to work more on portability or switch their entire mode of production line.

    Many top companies like Apple and Microsoft are having a broader range of product line that includes Desktop, Laptop, Smartphone, Tablet, etc. Tablets had also caused the usage mobility where desktop or laptops are not available. So in terms of better hardware configuration soon they are going to replace netbooks completely.

    I donít understand what kind of calculation you guys are doing. Though smartphones and tablets are getting interest of people around the world and are cheaper as well, but let me tell you that PCs are their Dad and laptops are Mom. You guys said people can carry their important Data, Presentation etc on their portable Tablets but can you guys please tell where are those Presentations and Data were actually created? Can you guys create presentation on your Tablet or smartphone?

    Dude, There are more than 1000 work which you cannot do on any smartphone or tablet available through the world. Computing doesnít means just watching videos or chatting with Girlfriend on Facebook which we do on smartphones and tablets, Official work is only done on PCs and Laptops.

    That is correct. Tablets are getting more portable and better.

    I had seen many smartphones recently loaded with Quad core processor. One we have a powerful device you can connect that to your monitor with HDMI cable and configure wireless keyboard mouse on the same. On that you can simply enjoy a full pc experience. The same is applicable to tablets also. But for that we will need to wait for some more time. There are still lot of changes needed.

    Thats absolutely correct buddy. Tablets and smartphones are popular on a specific category only. If you work on video editing or if you need extreme gaming performance then you will need to go for a desktop or laptop only. Tablet is just to check notification or to stay information with basic task. It is correct that the birth of tablet has given choices to many to choose a more portable device with ample of desktop like features. But I do not think in future it is going to take the place of pc.

    Of course smartphones and tablets are affecting the sales of PCs. I will not give links at this time, but Google "death of PC industry" and see what comes up.

    The sales of PCs (meaning desktops and laptops) are showing a decreasing trend from the last 4 quarters.

    Not that PCs will die out altogether - just means that people are buying less often. Earlier, you would perhaps go and update your PC every five years, now with tablets and smartphones doing many of the routine tasks - such as social networking, surfing, casual gaming - you would do it perhaps in eight or ten years.
