Despite the advances in mobile, the two categories are still miles apart.
Macs/PCs holds 250 GB-2,000 GB of storage. Phones and tablets top out at 128, but are more typically 16-32 gigs.
Macs/PCs evolved with the use of mice and keyboards. Mobile uses touch, accelerometers, etc.
The iPhone uses about 1 watt of power. Macs/PCs draw 10-100 times this (or more). They are still an order of magnitude more powerful (and not a sitting target).
Mobile is compact and meant to be pocketable. They have room for 1 or 2 plugs. Macs and PCs can have a dozen or more I/O ports.
