I don't think the PC is going away anytime soon. I have been an avid PDA user for over 10 years. I purchased an iPad 3G in Apr 2010 and I am very impressed with the mobility provided compared to previous devices.

I think the only change the PC will see, as in form, is the desktop/tower will get smaller.
