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: Missing the Usecases

Member since:

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.

Tablets have some overlap with tasks a PC currently performs, but are unlikely to replace a PC entirely for quite some time, if ever.
Right now I'm using three monitors. The two guys next to me use six monitors each. Monitoring alarms, Visio-style design sheets and managing multiple disparate systems. I'm sure there are plenty of other (better) use cases, too.
Your world may make do with a display and input device, but many other people need more.
