actually, for some things I think it's very clear that they can't be met
you are not going to get a large heatsink and fan on any mobile.
The storage available is always going to be much less (and no, an Internet connection does not replace storage)
and there is always a price premium on being small
you are mistaking turnover for use. the turnover of desktop systems is dropping (and to a lesser degree, turnover of laptop systems). No question there. But that just means that the R&D focus of the hardware vendors isn't going to be in that area, not that the traditional desktop OS is marginal.
if everyone keeps a machine for twice as long, the sales will drop by half, but the number of people using the systems remains the same.
