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.

RE[2]: Missing the Usecases

By saying, a tablet can ultimately fill in for the use cases of a traditional PC.

All the examples you gave are actually somewhat of outliers; they are not representative of what people generally use PCs for or how. In certain professional fields, yes, but in general, no.


I can do multi-OS installations on a tablet?


I can upgrade any component on a tablet(MOBO/CPU/GPU/HDD)?

Not likely.

I can wipe out the OS on a tablet if it gets corrupted and then install all my PREVIOUS software on it?

You can already do that with Android.

I can run high-end software on it? Think about Blender, Maya, Lightwave, Modo, CorelDraw, Illustrator, Photoshop as these software needs multi-core CPU and GPU power???

I'd say you're very likely able to do that in the future.
