Can a tablet replace your work PC?

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently said that 80-90% of his computer time is spent on an iPad.

This comment lead tech journalist Mike Elgan to wonder: “Could 80 percent of the corporate workforce do 100 percent of their work on a tablet?”  

His article sets out arguments for and against, but basically concludes that tablets would be sufficient for many.

For me personally, for what I need it for, while you would have to pry my tablet out of my hands, it is not adequate to replace my PC.  For too many things it is just not quite good enough, or efficient enough.  But depending on what one’s role is, a tablet may indeed be sufficient.

What do readers think?  Is anyone using a tablet while their PC gathers dust?
