Intel will always be around. Arm is just another way of doing things as well. Just like when smartphones came out, or more so, tablets.

Notebooks provide a more comfortable experience for doing things. Tablets will always be a consumption device. Now, the surface lineup blurs the lines more than others, but typing LOTS of content etc, I know I will grab my laptop every time if I am on the road, or plug it into my desk setup if home. I want the X for when I am in our camper and need a lightweight device to do some work and create content on the fly, if needed, and I am not near a power source. If I have shore power, I will break out my Dell every time.
