Tablets are gutting laptops

Written by Nick Farell


Neilsen claims people have found a use for them
Beancounters at Neilsen claim that people have found a use for keyboardless netbooks and are ditching their high-speed laptops for the pointless gear.

More than 77 per cent of tablet owners said they were using their new touchsensitive device for actions which they previously completed on their laptop or desktop computer. This strikes as odd as you can't really use a PC to play table tennis.

One in three tablet owners admitted to using their desktop computer less often, or not at all since purchasing a tablet.  We are surprised that many actually have found a use for it at all. More than 30 per cent of consumers who owned a laptop and a tablet indicated that they were more likely to favour their tablet over their laptop. More than 2 percent of respondents said they had stopped using their laptop all together since purchasing the tablet device.

In other words it was so frustrating they swore they would never touch another electronic gadget. We can't see why anyone would turn down a high-speed laptop for a small screen lump of plastic with their revolutionary tectonic speed chips.
