It is difficult to predict the future, but it is at least 
possible that the mainstream home-computing market will be 
dominated by smaller focused machines with SoCs. If we ignore 
Apple, then maybe the market will split into something like 
Chrome-books for non-geek users, something like Steam 
Deck/Machine for gamers and some other SoC with builtin FPGA or 
some other tinkering-friendly configuration for Linux 
enthusiasts. It seems reasonable that only storage will be on 
discrete chips in the long term. Drops in price levels tend to 
favour volume markets, so it is reasonable to expect SoCs to win
