I'm particularly interested in tablets because of their potential, rather than their current limitations. It may never come to be, other tech or form factors may replace it, but I see tablets as eventually being powerful enough to replace desktops. I imagine a scenario where you could dock your tablet and use it like a traditional computer. Much like how the Ubuntu tablets are supposed to work. Of course, it would take much better hardware to get anywhere near replacing an average desktop. I have doubts that they could ever replace gaming desktops, but to the average person that wants generic computer applications — web browsing, word processors, spreadsheets — it wouldn't take much.

The current tablets, even Surface Pro, still aren't quite there yet. I think it would take syncing with a larger monitor to be usable as a desktop.
