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.

Functionality won't change, form factor will. That's all. With more and more computing time being done on the couch in front of Honey Boo Boo the form factor companies design will follow.

When people need to do actual work there will be mice, keyboards, and larger monitors to connect to. When people want to stream Netflix there will be TVs to connect to. When people want to play video games there will be TVs and controllers to connect to. But when people want to sit on the couch and check their fantasy team stats or play Carcassone while watching Doctor Who they'll be able to.

Surface Pro does much this (admittedly awkwardly.) That new Razer tablet does all of this (admittedly awkwardly.) Next year at CES we'll just see more and more of this.

Yeah people will sure be productive typing out reports on a fucking tablet on the couch watching honey boo boo. VR was "just around the corner" for years too, and flying cars were supposed to be the norm by now.

Crysis 4 is going to look so awesome on that fancy surface pro, hardcore gamers will be lining up in droves to plug a mouse and keyboard into it and awkwardly game on their couch.

Let's just be honest here Beamer, not everyone gets a hard on for tablets and OMG WIRELESS EVERYTHING SO AWESOME!!! Most of us really couldn't give a fuck less.
