Is the Desktop PC Dying?

    Yeah, I think it is dying. I had used desktops from 1990-2004. Then I went to notebooks ever since (iBook G4 -> MacBook Core 2 Duo -> unibody MacBook Pro).

    My wife went iBook G4 -> iMac Core 2 Duo. Lately she's been saying how much she misses being portable.

    I think Apple is also shifting toward most users going portable. Case in point: the 24-inch LED Cinema Display. You can use it with a desktop Mac, but with the MagSafe power cable on it, it is unarguably designed for use with the MacBook family. And that there is the best of both worlds. Portable when you need it to be, but can have a desktop experince with an external display.

    I don't think the desktop will ever die. I have an Alienware Laptop that overheats and crashes every day, but my desktop never does that. I've never had problems with a desktop that I have had with a laptop.

    I'd have to agree with Greywulf… The various laptops I've had have crashed way more frequently than my desktops. There is a place in my house and work for both. However, when I really need to crunch code (compiling, rendering, etc), a laptop just can't handle it nearly as well as a desktop can.

    However, netbooks and laptops have a significant appeal to most users as they aren't doing processor or disk intensive activities. The ability to “go mobile” and not lose any functionality (that they don't use) is what has been and will continue to move people to mobile devices instead of desktops. However, there will always be a power-hungry folk out there needing features that mobile devices just can't deliver in the near future.

    Hello!

    Hi!

    I just made a loan to someone in Bolivia using a revolutionary new website called Kiva (http://www.kiva.org).

    You can go to Kiva's website and lend to someone across the globe who needs a loan for their business – like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent – and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is going.

    The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back – and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

    I just made a loan to an entrepreneur named 28 De Julio Group in Bolivia. They still need another $1,900.00 to complete their loan request of $4,950.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this entrepreneur off the ground by clicking on the link below to make a loan to 28 De Julio Group too:

    http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&act

    It's finally easy to actually do something about poverty – using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they're using it for. And most of all, I know that I'm helping them build a
    sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

    Join me in changing the world – one loan at a time.

    Thanks!

    Desktop will never die to be honest, lots of problems with laptops but not so many with pc's.

    Desktop is Superior to all computers. They won’t die!
    Workstations 
    gaming pc’s
    Even standard commercial grade PC’s
    The freedom to customization. and to build a system specifically for ones needs.
