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.
