Yep, people have been saying this for awhile. Software isn't driving hardware anymore, the only area that does that is gaming.
The "home PC' are dying" crowd is hilarious. People are just starting to really integrate them into HT systems, and soon whole-home PC's with attachable "screens" will become the norm.
I don't really care if my PC is an immobile "desktop" or a small form factor to be honest. I just want expandability and customization intact, I could care less if it moves around or not. As long as it runs what I need without issues then I'm fine. Currently no tablet or laptop does this sufficiently and I don't see that changing any time soon. The casual user is fine with a consumption device like a tablet and that's fine for them but there's still a large market that is not well served. Different products for different needs.
