What's with the constant stream of articles railing against PC's? If they are less common, then so be it. Who cares? Are they trying to convince people not to use them? The tech industry knows the stats and certainly doesn't need Yahoo or CNN to tell them. Consumers will buy what they want, for whatever need they want. It's good to have choices. I just built a new PC last month for stock trading and some gaming. I also have a laptop and a smart phone. Whoptie f'in do. Maybe I am just tired from my afternoon slump, but these articles seem to be very pointless to me.
