I accept and understand that all the device types under discussion here are computers. When I said a 'PC is a proper computer' I simply meant it is the most versatile and functional in that it does everything a computer should very well (except be mobile of course and the 'proper-computer' laptops do that anyway).
Clever as they may be, tablets etc are never going to be as universally useful as a full desktop PC - that's why when you go into any office or workspace you will find PCs sitting on the desks. Yes of course you might also find a tablet acting as a medium for porting some of the work elsewhere, but the PC is generally the main work machine.
The distinction between big smartphones and small tablets is shrinking - maybe one day somebody will produce a hybrid that really can do everything, but I doubt it. The 'phone' by its nature has to be small (to fit in a pocket), wheras the tablet has to be big enough to have a screen that anybody over the age of 30 can actually see
A PC is a proper computer that sits on (or under) your desk and traditionally has a mouse and keyboard for input, and a seperate, large screen. It does all the web stuff (email, farcebook, twatter etc) and is also a creative/business tool and workstation.
Tablets are NOT PCs, any more than posh phones are.
There is a strong case for having three broad classifications

Don't know where,

The skeleton staff working on weekends might be to blame.
There is also a big community behind it so there's plenty of support available.
The game is great fun, and it is easy to make expansions - your kids will be able to produce good results quickly.
It's incredibly difficult and time-consuming to eat well.
No it's not!
