PC Market Facing "Longest Duration Of Decline" In Its History

Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa believes that this is due to the rising interest in tablets. "In emerging markets, inexpensive tablets have become the first computing device for many people, who at best are deferring the purchase of a PC."

What do you think? Are PCs on their way out as far as the mainstream consumer is concerned? Could Valve's upcoming Steam Box put a deeper dent in the PC market? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
