All of these desktop vs. laptop vs. tablet vs. phone vs. etc. discussions imply that the computer is the focus when really it should be the interfaces. If my quadcore phone had methods to type and see the results as well as I can on my keyboard and multiple XX-inch monitors, I doubt that I'd have a need for anything else. For me, as my eyes fade and fingers age, the screens are also getting smaller and the keyboards need greater agility. Yea, progress!
