Who wants to wait to boot up a 500 - 1200 watt monster.. just to check a few emails.. or watch netflix?? Why not have a tablet or iPad that last for 10 hrs.. standby for days?

Netbooks failed.. because it try to run clunky Desktop OS.

The only thing PC can do now is.. maybe professional level graphics design / coding / AAA gaming.. that's just about it. No one will touch it.. if their job does not even demand that. PC is there just to collect dust for the occasional usage.

Laptops in the other hand, is the jack of all trades but master of none. It lacks the PC's performance, but have some tablet portability in it. It can do work, it can do Skype, most have sleep mode for the slightly faster instant on. But cost a bomb as well, and some have fans like jet engine.

Tablets succeeded, because it got the apps and just enough performance to get the task done. It makes zoom or Skype call a breeze.. It's just more 'useful' than a PC, and more portable than laptops for the daily task for casual user. Not to mention cheaper.

and that's because I am using a 5 year hard drive. SSD Drive would make a big difference. But I agree smart phones and tablets can be much faster and have all the apps you need.

Imagine now having the same as an iPhone but in a much, much larger screen and an iPadOS that does make better use of the big screen so it allows to run two apps side by side plus a third one that slides over, countless apps that are dedicated to the iPad and the addition of optional keyboard and mouse that allow such task like typing to be as good as on a pc. But the iPad still is much smaller and lighter than very laptop and depending on the model a lot cheaper.

2. What year is your i9 and is it a desktop or a laptop?
3. Is your i9 loading things from an hdd?
Because I can't believe your 4 year old ipad is as fast as let say editing and exporting a 4k video as an i9.

With hp's bismal reliability ratings for the past 5 years, it really makes me wonder, who buys hp anymore?

Even if your PC isn't powerful you can click on sleep instead of shut down. And it will wake up instantly. But no any tablet can compete with PC or laptops.

People need a giant phone more then to wait 5hrs firing up a clunky PC.

It got the apps and performance to get the job done.

[deleted post]It plays out the same like in the smartphones, Android devices cannot sell well in the upper end segment, they only sell well in mid range or entry level. The upper end belongs to Apple.

Not surprised to see Samsung losing steam on the tablet department: aside from the Tab S6 Lite, their options are really expensive for what they are
