Consider the upcoming Asus Transformer Prime tablet which has more
horsepower than my desktop computer (by far) though less RAM and less
storage. The cloud can be your storage... heck all of my music is
already on Google Music.

It's thoroughly conceivable that these devices will indeed displace what
is generally thought of as the irreplaceable home computer and maybe in
the near future - after all, probably 80-90% of what occupies our
computer usage is e-mail & web browsing. Just take a look at the latest
3 phones added to Verizon... the Razr, Rezound, Nexxus. Wow!
