cnn: Portability on the move in the new PC era

Pretty good article over at cnn.com on portable computing. They don't mention Tablet PCs in particular, but they do point to this interesting stat:

IDC predicts that worldwide sales of traditional desktop PCs -- which have grown non-stop since their introduction in the late 1970s and early '80s -- will peak in major developed markets like the United States around 2009 and then start to decline.

Around the same time, IDC forecasts more nimble laptop computers will overtake their stodgier desktop cousins in unit sales, accounting for 55 percent of the 80 million units expected to ship for the year.
