Default Hmmm...

Interesting thread. I killed the other one.

I would like to think that how far any part of computer technology will only be limited by imagenation. It's going to take time to develope memory and cpu chips that go faster and do more. The young people of this forum have a front row seat to what's going to unfold in the near future...

Well i can't wait til the double layer CPU's come out to play, and the 1 to 3 gig. memory sticks, There is almost no limit on how fast a copmputer can get.

Yes there is almost no limit to how fast they can get. But there is a point where we don't need faster ones.
