As part of the coverage around the latest version of the iPad, there have a number of articles looking at the decline of the desktop. One such article was in the New York Times, As New iPad Debut Nears, Some See Decline of PCs.

Also expect to hear a lot of about ultrabooks – PCs as sleek and thin as Macbooks. We expect that Post-PC will be a term we’ll hear a lot in 2012, given the exploding popularity of tablets, especially iPads.
By the way, we don’t expect to see laptops or desktops to disappear anytime soon. (Well, not laptops.) There’s still a need for PCs and iMacs, for that matter.
But we do expect to hear, read and see Post-PC used more often this year and in the future.Tagged: trends, predictions, validation, Post-PC, 2012
