2013: The year tablets finally outsell notebooks?

Quote:
Notebook PC shipments have slowed down due to a reduction in worldwide demand. However, new processors scheduled for the second part of 2013 are set to introduce more tablet-like PC features to notebook devices, such as instant on, 24-hour battery life and new physical appearances.

Woho! Instant on is a total killer feature. Finally a real tablet. Just need to swap Windows 7 in the place of Win 8.

Yeah I know. I need something to get on the net to search for solutions and run diagnostic devices (physical USB devices, not software), and a tablet running 7 is cooler than a laptop for that.

I have my gaming rig for the heavy duty (like say adding the boatload of updates in my AIO Windows 7 install USB drive). Anyway, even android stuff can remote-desktop on PCs so if I need it I can always ask it to do some number-crunching over the internet.

How exactly does gaming and tablets work anyway? And no, I don't mean "gaming" as in Farmville.

I like the side hand controllers. Control on tablets has always been their Achilles heel.


Still, if I had to choose between a tablet and a notebook - I would choose a notebook simply because it is more 'feature rich'. Better compatibility, more ports, optical* etc.

I can see tablets outselling notebooks though, because most people will tend have a desktop, notebook anyway.

well, yeah, a tablet with external controllers is not that different from a touchscreen laptop in the end. Repacking the same hardware.

The "X is outselling Y" 99.99% of the times means that people don't have Y atm while most have already a X. That's the same for car market. They still want to sell as high as when the market was booming even now that everyone and their dog has already a car (and the market is saturated).
The same for mobile phones before Apple turned the old Microsoft Surface (the bigass table) in a hand-held device called iPhone.
