The end of laptops and notebooks is coming. Soon tablets will replace them. Tablets like ipad 4 and nexus 10 are halfway there!!! May be in two yrs post PC devices will rule the world.

i would consider your comment correct if you stated surface, or any other windows 8 pro devices that converts from pc to tablets instead of tablets with OSes that are half baked compared to full OSes

I hate the "iOS user make up 60% number". I am about 90% sure it's inaccurate. As my browser either shows up as a desktop, or a "safari 0.0" browser. So I don't believe that number is right at all.

With 17.8% from Asia and 14%+ from Africa those browser numbers on Safari look a bit out of proportion. On Android it can be any browser, default android/chrome/opera mini/dolphin/firefox.

It's rather uncomfortable staring at a small screen for hours though. I only use it occasionally. The desktop or laptop is still better for web browsing IMO.
