Yeah PC sales are down, but PC's have also plateaued performance wise. We simply aren't getting generational leaps in computing power that necessitate new hardware anymore. A system from 5+ years ago can still handle most tasks. Pads meanwhile ARE getting sizable upgrades that justify purchases, but even those are going to slow down as they've hit the battery wall.

Actually, the problem is that older PCs handled the vast number of things people did just fine, so they see no difference with a new one. You really have to do something that requires power to see the benefit: photoshop, video editing, or Crysis, and that's a minority of people.
