You'll want a PC with Intel's new chip for the battery life alone

Patrick Thibodeau | May 29, 2013
Intel's latest chip, the 4th generation Core processor code-named Haswell, will take a 6-hour battery and make it last for 9 hours.

The hardware and software updates should bring laptops into the range of tablets in price, performance, and battery life. As that laptops are more useful, "it should begin the process of taking share back," said Enderle.

"It'll take about three to five years to fully reverse this trend, but I expect Haswell will have a lot of folks asking why they need a tablet," said Enderle.
