Imprecise processing isn't useless, such as graphics, audio, etc. do not require absolute mathematical precision. It can even be advantageous to not have a mathematical precision.
Still most of the quantum computing is a hype so far with no real application being showcased. So far it also seems highly impractical and expensive.
There is a reason silicon chips with transistors are popular, they are dirt cheap to make and operate.
