    I think you have it a bit wrong. I don’t think the goal of the cloud is to take the load off the PC. Or, as you say “the client even though they are very good computers can not keep up with the demands that are needed to ensure security.”

    It is the security software companies that cannot keep up. The purpose of the cloud, in the practice of some of the better thinking AV companies, is to put the onus on the community to identify bad code, define it, solve it, and share that info with members of the cloud. This is the most effective way to rollout definitions, defend zero day threats and end reliability on the often painfully slow practices of these AV companies when it comes to implementing fixes.
