"I'm genuinely amazed there's not a single comment here about how it isn't possible/practical to write code on a "post-pc" device. Bar a few specialised industries, how many people can really do all their work on an iPad?" @Jack, I wrote one above. Its absurd to think that I can develop truly be creative on those things and its even more absurd that the marketing einsteins at apple or microsoft or samsung or wherever try to tell me that I could be productive and creative on them. They're toys and I do have one but its just a toy. Its clumsy, dont try to hand someone the iPad so you can show them something because they're going to grab it and touch the screen and activate SOMETHING - but what you're trying to show them will be gone. It is what it is but its not a true blue desktop workhorse and it wont be for quite some time - if ever.

@Mattola Pollardo why would you want to take it to the beach? So those billions of fine grains of sand can blow into ever nook and cranny - especially the charging port?

Wrong. The desktop is far from dead. I dont know anyone who can produce on a tablet or phone like they can produce on a desktop and that is the only reason it will never go away. Look at that Windows 8 "metro" disaster waiting to occur...... put that on a desktop and its certainly dead. The PC will always be the place where people will generate content and build the code that runs those phones and tablets and whatever is next. Not vice-versa. Its nice for games and for photos and browsing maps and looking up stuff - sure, but its clumsy as heck and give me my desk with my keyboard and mouse and yall can keep playin with your tablets.
