How far away are we from having a generation of kids who have tablets, but not PCs? Do we have one already?

Not taking into consideration one's like or dislike for Microsoft, but I believe that the Surface Pro 1/2 is bridging the gap between the two. However, I don't think that a "pure" tablet, like an iPad, will totally replace a PC because of MOD's (and horsepower as it stands today). My son plays Minecraft PE on the iPad, but he likes me to install MOD's on the PC version as it GREATLY extends the game and what you can do with it. My kids definitely use the iPad for Angry Birds etc, "lite" games, but eveb my 6 y/o can see the value in what the PC can do for a game.

A "pure" tablet is just a bridge, anyway. Its a product in the early part of its development curve, kind of like laptops once were - back when they were 15 lbs "portable computers." They'll keep getting powerful, to the point where companies like Google and Apple have to ask difficult questions about whether their stripped-down, limited OSs still make sense for the product.
