Windows 7: Remember the desktop PC? Intel is trying to reinvent it

That's the problem with touch screens, they get dirty. Even non-touch screens get dirty too, but it gets even worse with touch.

Speaking of dirty screens, my dollar store microfiber towel cleans screens (and lots of other stuff) wonderfully.

The item shown here is no desktop, it is an over sized, bulky, and clumsy tablet.



Below is what a desktop PC is and shall forever more be.











Even attaching a separate keyboard/mouse to a tablet results in a tablet with a keyboard/mouse, it's not a desktop PC.

It seems like ''All-In-One'' and ''Touch Screen'' PCs have thermal problems. I ain't gonna game in one of those.

What I didn't like about the video was the carrying around part. It's just ridiculous to call a 27'' screen "mobile" - at times I'm annoyed when I have to carry around a regular 15.6'' laptop around the house, let alone this giant. I actually watched the video twice because I was rolling my eyes too much the first time.

Also, the touchscreen. On one side, I can perfectly understand why someone would want to use a touchscreen and be rid of the mouse and keyboard, but with a screen as big as that it's much more uncomfortable. The fact that it supports KB+M means users get the best of both worlds - especially if they're using Windows 8.

But in the end, I agree with Jimbo. Lower power consumption, less noise, less tangled cords, less space! We live in times where young people even in some economically "advanced" countries are still living with their parents past the age of 25; living space is a big problem for many. Utilities and other bills just keep rising and rising for "no good reason" in the eyes of the little man, and the lifestyle we may have enjoyed in the past is more and more demanding as the years go by.

I understand that someone likes to tinker with hardware and get the best out of the money they spent - but why is the assumption that these kind of PCs are not tweakable is so popular? Just because we haven't seen this progress yet doesn't have to mean that we'll never be able to do it in the future. Every machine needs fixing and tinkering, and that will never go away; the only thing that's changing here is the form factor. And effectively the size.

Also, calling a big PC a tablet just because it has a touchscreen is utterly ridiculous. If that's the case, why do we still use the term smartphones instead of mini tablets for every phone with a touchscreen? What about the older touchscreen+keyboard combo phones? A type tablet? Don't be ridiculous, people.

I am still a big fan of the good old desktop PC, but technology advances whether we want it or not. Sooner or later, we as a species all adapt to changes. Those who don't usually don't last very long (generally speaking). We might not like it, but that's how it is.

Pretty boring. No real progress. Just fiddling with known technology.

Yes it is, the most important thing with Haswell refresh is the reverting back to soldering the CPU lid to the die, which they quit with Ivy Bridge. For hobbyists it means a much better overclocking window and lower temps.
