Thanks to the media tablet, the PC has gotten a bad rap lately. It's slow, bulky, unresponsive.
The tablet zealots would have you believe that the PC's days are numbered. But while they've been busy writing the laptop's obituary, the PC ecosystem has been hard at work re-inventing itself.
Sparked by Intel's Ultrabook initiative, the laptop is addressing the shortcomings that gave the tablet an opening into their market.
The fruits of their labor start rolling out in earnest next week, at Computex. The aisles will be full of sleek, sexy new models that are as responsive as they are adaptable to what consumers want to do with them.
RIP laptop? Not on your life.
