How are PC's becoming obsolete when the very nature to PC gaming is superior to consoles in every way?
Microsoft once was testing out multiplayer on a new Halo game and pitched PC players against console players to see if cross-platform would work. The PC players destroyed the console players.
You shouldn't be going to WalMart to buy your PC. The joy is in building it yourself.
They said I was trolling! HAH!
PCs are stepping aside on consumer field, definitely. With more hardware-requiring static applications, servers etc. it will hold it's ground I think.

Playing competitive FPS on a console is like claiming you are the Worlds Best Eater of Spaghetti using a single Greased Chopstick. Respectable, in it's own strange way - but anybody with a fork is going to have a much more enjoyable meal.
If the RAM breaks on my PC, I can remove it, get it into the shop for replacement and get a new one. All within less than 2 hours. This will be significantly more difficult on a laptop and not possible on a tablet/smartphone.
The majority of people who work at computer repair stores are stupid, and the fact that I have to rely on someone like them to fix a hardware problem on my laptop horrifies me.

The average PC user isn't like you, they aren't going to open 60 tabs in Firefox and leave them open. They're going to open a few at a time and close them before opening more.No they aren't. Even simply browsing the web I can fill 8GB RAM pretty quickly, because I don't like to close tabs. I usually have between 50-60 tabs open at the same time plus a ton of other software in the background. Tablets can't handle heavy multitasking.
PCs that are designed for light use such as this, for the average college student, office employee, or grandparents, are becoming obsolete because tablets, phones, and netbooks can handle those basic tasks every bit as well as a PC can.
