That having said, I did buy a bluetooth keyboard for my tablet and plan to not replace my notebook when it dies as I hardly use it.

If you use a tablet with a keyboard, isn't it a PC?
To me, the defining characteristic of a PC, as opposed to a tablet or smartphone or any other kind of personal computer is the keyboard and display. I guess a traditional whole-hand mouse helps, too.
Likewise, it's hollow to claim one doesn't have a desktop computer if one plugs one's laptop into a docking station and uses a full keyboard and giant display screen.
