My conclusion: Not yet ready, but getting there. Precision of the mouse and speed of the full size keyboard are still unmatched.
Having no other choice while traveling, I had to use a "PC killer suite" to write an article. The hardware consisted of iPhone and iPad mini. The software was Google Drive and proprietary market apps.
My first hurdle was to adapt to the specific workflow, such as holding chart detail view opened with one finger on the iPhone, and typing detailed data in the cells on the iPad. On PC, not only would I be able to use double windows and quickly refocus with a mouse, but I also would be able to export market data into CSV and import it into spreadsheet processor.
My second issue was limited feature richness in applications. It's not only particular application issue, such as missing pie charts in Google Spreadsheets, or missing spellcheck in Google Documents, but it is general lack of feature parity of their PC-based counterparts.
And third — the pain. Oh the searing pain! It's not enough to have Popeyes forearms! You have to hold them in the air or shift your positions from an office table, to an armchair, to a sofa.... And the speed of typing is nowhere near the full sized keyboard counterparts!
How do Slashdotters perceive the state of the "PC killer suite"?
