Although Apple and Google officially sit out the biggest tech trade show of the year, their platforms are well represented by the third parties that create thousands of products for them. This year it feels like Microsoft is simply being left out.

Windows has virtually no presence in the two biggest things to hit computing in a long time, and it's starting to show. Microsoft may not be in trouble - but Windows is.

Article doesn't agree with title ...

This part of the linked article is not consistent with the claim of the forum's title:

""We’re arriving at a sweet spot where Intel / AMD tablets are now becoming desktop, let alone laptop, replacements," says Miller. "These tablets are combining the right mix of portability / weight, performance, and price such that a lot of users who would have held out for a laptop, because it was more powerful, might want a tablet instead, and even be willing to live with some compromises in order to benefit from the other form-factor benefits and flexibility.""

I don't see any evidence of Intel / AMD tablets replacing anything. Apple doesn't even sell Intel / AMD tablets. Apple only sells their own custom designed ARM-based tablets.
