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.

Cherry picking! We are looking at total sales of all PC globally, that's not a cherry picked number.

The problem with your theory is that you're ignoring the fact that people aren't upgrading their PC's nearly as much as they were a mere few years back because they simply don't need to. Further, you ignore that sales were slowing before tablets come into play. And, you're claiming the "real" reason for the decline is credited to the rise of tablets although you have no credible source in support of this.

I know the tablet-lovers really really want to believe their `precious` is killing PC's but the painful truth, for them, is they're not.
