It's a good point. Another factor is that Windows itself has improved pretty drastically in terms of the bogged down/re-install cycle that probably triggered a few desktop purchases on those that don't know how to fix such problems.
That said, PC's used to be the *only* way to get online and perform basic tasks, whereas now there are lots of options. But clearly there are lots of "heavy lifting" tasks that there is currently nothing on the market that to beat a standalone machine with a full-sized keyboard.
