Are Laptops becoming a dying breed?

With Apple starting a revolution in 2010, introducing the iPad, computer companies have begun joining the shift in technology, each coming up with their own version of a computer tablet. Although similar touchpad tablets had been around almost a decade before the iPad with Microsoft, Apple was the first to make such a large impact on consumers.

Acting as a convenience students in education, the tablet seems to be the next form of laptops and computers in general. They are small and lightweight and you can retrieve all emails, books, magazines, and newspapers on a single easy-to-use format with the aesthetics of the paper version.

You may have already noticed a shift in the classroom setting, but will the classroom environment soon consist of only Tablets or will something else soon take those over as well?
