Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

Good grief, not this again.
What in your opinion, will we use in the future for:


Though I agree with your general gist, we could very well be using work stations for that, by which I mean more dedicated, more powerful, versions of the "home PC". It may well be we will see a split between consumer devices (tablets) and more professional devices (work stations). I'm not saying we will, but we could.

I can't wait to see the very fancy tablet to accomplish these tasks!


No need. Most of those tasks will not be performed at home. And when talking about Microsoft, they get a large share of their profit from home use. So it may be an important shift.
