We're a few years into the tablet / PC debate. With Windows 8, the line is blurred further and the distinction between "tablet" and "PC" begins to disappear.

One thing I've noticed all along, though, is that those with the strongest opinions about what you can't accomplish with a tablet, and how it's just a toy/fad generally haven't really used one--beyond possibly swiping and tapping one at Best Buy for 10 minutes--and really don't know what they're talking about.

They seem like the people still running Windows XP--or maybe even Windows 98 (Microsoft can't "force" them to upgrade dammit!) on a Pentium desktop PC, and using 56K dial-up.

There are pros and cons, and it's a nuanced discussion. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I've seen valid, rational arguments made in both directions. I'm not talking about everybody--just noting that those who are most adamant also seem to be most clueless and just come off sounding like "You kids get off my lawn!" curmudgeons.
