re: Don't Give Up On The PC
You're right, PCs do look and perform better than ever (thinner, lighter, faster) but it's mostly lost on consumers. As the article points out, consumers don't know what they're getting with a "new" ultrabook from Lenovo, HP, Acer etc etc. They don't want to pore over specs or research the latest chip-sets and they're suspicious that retailers are pushing the latest and greatest PCs. It's much easier to understand iPad 2, 3, 4.

re: Don't Give Up On The PC
Transparency is a critical point, but lack thereof is also a time-honored selling ploy -- just try comparing mattresses, carpets or HDTVs across a few vendors. I think it's going to take a bit more pain before PC makers bite that particular bullet.
