    All of their work? Really? I'd like to see you run any half decent desktop software on a mobile device. Especially as a lot of it is Windows/Mac only.

    CAD, 3D modelling, photo editing, video editing, scientific data analysis....

    And even if the software runs, or there's an equivalent, try that on a 5" screen with no keyboard and mouse etc and you'll go insane in about three minutes.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    The ph screens are too small , and then you loose part of that small screen with the on screen keyboard . Its do-able but no one would really want to.
    People use Mac or PC's for day to day office work. Some out of Office jobs are done on Tablets , with specialized Android apps written for those tasks .

    I did have one office worker wanting to remote onto her work PC using her phone . I set that up , but was such an awefull experience it wasnt used .
    Even 10" - 12" laptops can be such an frustrating experience (screen size) that they very quickly get put aside & never used again for normal office work .

    Tablets...mini PC things...like a tablet but with KB and can plug into a bigger screen, friends daughter has one...no idea what brand it is...
    But yes CAd and the like no, PCs are still the thing, but for anything other than major sw like that, people do use phs mostly.
