In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

You can't do iPad development on an iPad. You need a desktop PC for that.

However, you can do desktop PC development on a desktop PC.

This, I think, is the main distinguishing factor.


I could develop Z88 programs on a Sinclair Z88, but I wouldn't say it was a PC.
