Tablets are great and all but i love sitting at my desk in front of my computer. I love gaming on my computer and i love the size of the screen. Tablets are too small and you have to hold them and look down... they are good for short views but it does get a little annoying to hold are some time.
It's pretty understandable.... These days more and more people are just surfing the net through web browsers more than anything else. People needing CPU or graphics power for playing games, graphic design, video editing, and other intensive programs are very few and far between. 10 years ago everyone around me were playing games, doing our own webpage design etc. Now people just need a browser for Internet use. The mainstream gamer doesn't seem to care a sour graphics and seem to look more for casual games to pass the time on a bus or doctors office which tablets provide in spades. Hey are lighter and more portable than laptops, the touch screen makes needing a keyboard and mouse for every day tasks unnecessary, enough storage for most people's library of music videos and pictures, and to top if off many tablets have higher resolution/higher PPI than people's desktop monitors and even television sets.
I have used my iPhone 3GS then 4 and now 5 as my main "PC" for the last 4 years and I was a huge power user who had to have th best hardware at all times. Without playing games I no longer need all that power or to spend that much money on a desktop just to do the same things I already do on my phone.
It's sad that as servers and desktops get more and more powerful people find reasons to constantly go backwards in the name of portability. Desktops got powerful and laptops starting gaining more group, laptops finally started catching up to desktops and now we are on the tablet bandwagon, when tables start catching up to desktops something else will take over like a phablet crave. It's almost like people are looking for reasons to downgrade all the time.
