My former networking professor once told me that laptops are slowly becoming obsolete and the time for tablets are quickly taking over. Sooner or later we're going to see more people using tablets for basically everything. We're going to minimize the use of keyboards as most touchscreen keyboards that come with laptops & tablets are mostly going to be used/accustomed.

Personally, I still want laptops to remain in existence as I'm still not too fond with tablets and touchscreen keyboards. But sometimes the slow transition from laptops to tablets are becoming extremely helpful, especially for the disabled who cannot use a keyboard to get by on the computer and have to rely on everything on the touchscreen.

I'm sure laptops will continue to stick around for many more years to come, just updated and more suitable to the touch and hopefully we don't have to rely on *just* tablets.
