@Anne, You are right on the fact that sales of Laptops will drastically reduced but i also feel that this might cause a kind of revolution in the world of PC if PC still want to remain relevant to this age

_hm, 

Could you be more especific? 

Tablets are not desktop or laptop replacements. They are different devices for different uses and they serve very well depending on the needs of the user. 

I don't understand what you mean by saying "the quality of work may not be so rich." How do you think your the quality of your work can change by using a tablet? 

I would say the quality of your work depends only on you and not on the device you are using, this given that you are using the right device for the type of work you do.

Perhaps quality of work may not be so rich.

iPads' restrictions on third-party software may pose a barrier for their deployment in the enterprise.  The "Wow" factor, though, may lead companies to get over this barrier. 

Certain companies do use Macs on their networks, and the iPad OS has the Mac OS, which is closely related to Unix, as its core.  The restrictive nature of what s/w can be installed on the device makes it particularly effective against exploits.  Malware attacks have been reported where app's were installed circumventing Apple's authorization framework however.

_hm, 

What "side effects" do you see in the use of tablets? 

What kind of "time testing" are you referring? 

What exactly is what one must evaluable? 

I would really like to understand what is the "bad" you see about tablets.

@Dave Yes, tablets are getting into schools. I've even heard of programs to obtain them for kindergarteners.

As tablet PCs become more prevalent, the relative proportion of laptops sold will gradually decline.  Thus the potential to take a considerable portion of the enterprise market share is feasible, and to gain market share is also noteworthy.  This is not to say that tablets will replace laptops entirely; instead they will add value to the existing technology infrastructure.
