That is sort of how I've been using my home desktop for about ten years, maybe more. Ever since I bought my first laptop for the main living room the desktop unit has been the scanner, printer, video-storage and file processor while the smaller mobile units were access and consumption devices. I still need the desktop unit as the "mainframe" of my house but you are correct in that I am using mobile kit more and more often.
I am, for example, typing this on a notebook - I find tablet and pad virtual keyboards too small for my clumsy fingers.
I suspect the main house computer, the desktop, will be needed as a warehouse for some time.
And, of course, gamers and programmers and other top-end users will need them for some years.
There you go: an analysis of the future of desktops and I didn't mention *any* specific company. TR could do worse than use this as a template for future articles.
They could also do better, but they won't.
