With all the new gizmos and gadgets that hit the market every year it makes you wonder. Are conventional computers on their way out? Years ago I remember computers that were so heavy you needed three strongmen and a crane just to move them an inch. The along came the laptop. Sure it was still bulky but was a whole lot more portable.

Then everything got smaller, laptops, computers, you name it. But now we live in an age where there are phones that are almost just as powerful as some computers. We surf the Internet,send emails, write documents. All on devices that fit in our pockets. Does all this portable power mean that conventional computers as we know them are on their way out?

Well that is a question only time can really answer. With tablet devices like the iPad paving the way for a new generation of computers we may soon see desktops and laptops alike become obsolete. Now of course this won’t be a one day you wake up and boom you have an dinosaur sitting in your home kind of thing (though that does seem to be how technology works doesn’t it?)
But gradually we may see “normal” computers be transitioned into sleeker and more efficient designs.

But even if desktops DO become obsolete large screen computers will not. No one is going to want to do all of their work on a tiny little phone. But inside of a few years would might see walls that house computer displays (like a giant screen tv) or projectors that can create a fully interactive UI anywhere on the home or office. Either way you put it conventional computers will be on their way out and a new age of computer usage is on it’s way.
