|On public transport, then yes a laptop size is more burdensome to carry than a tablet, but neither are great on public transport due to their size, especially in relation to a smartphone.|
Concentrating on this next decade only, this is what I see as being my devices, and what I suspect most people, who if they can afford a middle class lifestyle, will also have.

2. Laptop - Ultrabook level weight
4. Book Reader
Now some people may merge 2 & 3, that I readily admit, but I don't see where a Xoom or Ipad fits in there, unless one is a gadget junkie. If they hope to use it as a Book Reader, a Xoom or Ipad device have extra weight and cost compared to a Book Reader.
But I can't see how getting a 10" tablet is going to make me happier, than having the above selection.
The lack of proper keyboard, storage and processing power, means it loses to an Ultrabook.
It's extra size means it loses to a Smartphone for portability and it's extra size over a Smartphone only works in those rare situations where you don't want your laptop with you.
