    It appears that with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that this is pretty much a done deal for a lot of people. I think this has been true for awhile, but with the new iPhone's, especially the 5.5 iPhone 6 Plus, it sounds like a lot of people are going to sell their iPad Mini's and maybe other devices and the iPhone 6 Plus is going to be their main computing platform.

    Am I right? Do you use your iPhone for everything pretty much? Is it your personal computer?

    My nMP is my main computer. Everything else, including the MBP, is a portable device for consumption and communication, although the MBP gets upgraded to main computer when I'm travelling.

    I use my phone mostly for the web/data, but I do rely on a high-end PC for my work and gaming.

    Have a new custom-build on the way to me right now in fact.

    no. iphone is a smartphone thats it, pretty useless to do any meaningful work on. For me smartphones and tablets are not desktop/laptop replacements

    I can't do "real work" on my iPhone, screen is too small. That's why I have my iMac, for getting **** done.
