laptops will probably bite the dust before desktops will, you can do an awfull lot on a phone you can with a laptop, more people are buying laptops for the convenience but as handheld devices improve they will start to encroach on laptop sales, but desktops for gaming and other resource hungry software will almost certainly continue, when you look at how much m/b makers put into marketing boards for gamers and high performance users you start to realise how big a market it is, it may be a niche market but its big enough for companies to invest heavily to keep them loyal.
