Hardware, Embedded Systems If there's one over-used buzzword currently making the rounds in the technology industry, it's 'post-PC world' - or the notion that desktops and laptops are a dying breed. Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's printing and personal systems group, thinks this is a nonsensical notion - and he's right.

Missing the Usecases

I think you are missing the basic use cases. That's what really matters. If a tablet can ultimately fill in for the use cases of a traditional PC, then ultimately it will supplant the PC. And I am certain they can. It's really just a matter of time before the software is all in place, and not much time at that. Then all the hardware vendors have to do is make it easy to walk up to a *terminal* and tap into the tablet.

A terminal can be any supplemental interface, but in the PC case obviously it is keyboard and mouse, and optionally a larger monitor.
