There's no new killer app that requires a PC upgrade. There's no necessary new networking technology that requires a new computer. Consumers don't care about the expiration of Windows XP next year. As a result, PCs will become like big-screen TVs: Expensive, luxury items that are rarely replaced. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th PCs in every house will be a tablet. Every student's first PC will be a tablet. And any company without a viable tablet strategy will be dead.
