Well, it's a discussion I have with a friend, who says they will soon disappear ... what do you think?
continuum was awesome, pity Windows Phones came too late and failed and i couldn't find a reseller selling the dock for my 950XLI believe the next step in the smartphone world is "smartphone > PC monitor = smartphone/PC". I thought it was a great idea to merge something everyone has into something useful for school, office work, etc., without being too gimmicky. Similar to what Microsoft tried:

i have two 18+ inch laptops, they works beautifully as Desktop replacements, one is Windows 10 , the other is Linux MX.Or maybe the PC market will move more towards All-in-One or Laptops (I've noticed Laptops seem to be on the rise, but I still don't personally like to use them...I don't travel though)? IDK.
Same reason i left the business, since internet they don't requires my services to fix stuff or have a techie friend. Most repair guys now are MSPs rather than "the guy we call to fix stuff".Most of my consumer clients don't need my tech services anymore because all of the family are using mobile devices more. Hell, even 5 year old kids are getting new $1k Iphones and don't even desire Laptops or PCs, unless it is anything Apple then they jump for joy.
I voted no for the same reasons.I voted NO though because PCs, servers, etc. will always have a use for many years to come, but will see a steady decrease in use among consumers, unless they are gaming (which is a niche market) or using PCs for business.
indeed rich countries users prefer to buy laptops, poor ones still buy low end desktops with winXP/7My opinion is of course bias towards where I live.
IMO, foldable phones are at the moment just horribly expensive gadgets for wealthy people. They are not even close as convenient as a good ol tablet. i rather buy a 200$ 10 inch tablet (where i can read PDF and watch movies comfortably without being afraid of dropping it on the floor) + a very good 1000$ high end smartphone + a mid-end laptop, than those 2000$ foldable phones.Likely the tablets will fade away as more smartphones become foldables like having 2 or more folds instead of the current single fold design or just simply a slab
