John Paul Titlow:
The iPad and its chief competitors in the tablet space are not poised to replace laptops and desktops just yet, a fact confirmed in IDG’s survey. Only 6% of respondents said their tablet has “completely replaced” their PC and 16% said the iPad had ousted their laptop from their lives. Instead, the tablet is serving as more of a supplementary device.
This would make it seem to most (including Titlow) that the iPad is a supplementary device. But I think this survey actually shows just how fast the iPad is taking over, in just two years 16% of iPad users have replaced their laptops. That’s incredible to me. 1
- Yes I know the survey was for “tablets”, but come on — we all know it’s iPads.↩
