i agree with this and i agree with ts also
its true more and more shops converting to selling gagets than diy..i think that could more to do with profit margin and somemore wty is no longer inhouse but by the manufacturer direct
i think gadgets have its market share, diy will also continue have its market share..but depends how to add up 100%

It's amazing how people can make an argument without even thinking

So can Tablets run my encoding demands? Not in my lifetime, PCs will always be faster.

Google's OS was lambasted by RS (if u know who is RS). Real geeks and hackers abhor it. The so called "IT Geeks" u r refering to r script kiddies. Just my 2 cents worth. Cheers.
QFT. If half the people in my Computer Science course can't even write a decent piece of code beyond Hello World, I can safety conclude that the rest of the "IT Geeks" are no more than cut and paste people or script kiddies.

Tablets/slates can never replace the functions of what a DIY pc or traditional pc is made to do.

They won't be as powerful as the non compact versions. (for gaming/adobe/server)
at least for the few good years to come ...

Until processor performance reach a limit.
both desktop and slate have the same configurations.

This is what I think..

I think trend tech geeks follow the it trend.
but tech geeks will always have the think about DIY embedded in their mind and soul(s).

Following Moore's law, I think far future computers will have more CPU sockets instead of faster cpu.
