I really doubt that will EVER happen, possible there will be more lappys but I think there wil always be desktops (laptops aren't really for gaming).

thats true, its really hard to modify and build your own laptops and thats just not fun. Plus how our we going to have dual screens. or Quad in the future.
Plus With the Ati r600 coming out, theres no one im going to shove two of thoughs things inside of there.

i doubt it any tiem soon , for a lot of large companies desktops are both more powerfull for the money /are easier to repair/maintain and upgrade and for the home user some desktopss are still more powerfull than a laptop and very much cheaper

hi,

ummm soon probably not. but my opinion is desktops as we know them will almost definately become extinct not in the near future maybe not even in our life times but yes i reckon we wont have desktops in the future but instead have things like this.....

http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/3114/newpcdt8.jpg



sorry not sure how to post pictures.

that picture was found here http://www.rense.com/general69/future.htm which is maybe a load of bol**cks maybe not but i reckon something similar in the distant future will replace out desktops.

that claims we will have them in bout 4 years but if you take that as a start like the very first pc and imagine the research and improving of the technology then imagine that type of size with some awesome performance in 10 maybe 20 years then that in my opinion is almost definately the future.

i dont know be nice to hear your opinions ??

(am i spelling opinions right ??)

This is not likely to happen. The infrared keyboard is sensitive, so if you put it on and something rolls, whatch the series of keys pressed. If you put it on glass, it will go straight through.

Same goes for scren.

lots more basic home users will turn to laptops as they are more convenient. there will still be a lot of people wiht desktops, mainly gamers. they will never die out but i have a feeling laptops are becoming big business
