Apple Back in late January, Apple unveiled its iPad (in case you missed it), an iPhone OS-powered tablet device which it said would ship later this year. Well, the Cupertino company is holding true to its promise, and has unveiled the pre-order and shipping dates of the iPad.

You're missing the point. Tablet PCs can replace fully-fledged desktop PCs for *a lot of people*. No one is saying they will replace desktop PCs for 'serious work'. But whatever 'serious work' may be, 80-90% of people don't use their home PC for that.

Serious work involves tools like Office, Photoshop, Origin, Mathematica, Online Banking and so on.

I understand your point but I don't think that only around 20% of users at home use their PCs for other than just Facebook and eBay. At least among most of my colleagues and friends, this is not the case.

Where do you have that number from? Any sources?
