I think it's misleading to claim that desktops are losing share. Quarterly sales may be down but I think thats becasue most people have found their current systems are generaly sufficient to meet their needs, and are no longer upgrading until either the system won't do what they want, or something breaks. (enthusiast community excluded) Add in the number of private used sales, scrounged, traded or given away systems and I'd say desktops are doing quite well.

PS: I had a somewhat longer and more succinct post but after the board dumping it twice I didn't feel like typing it all a third time.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
