If not for blue ray, how else can you distribute 20+ GB ?

I have 12 mbps internet. That's around 5 GB per hour best case. So 4 hours to download the equivalent of a blue ray disk. Too slow.

Meanwhile the blue ray disk costs, what, a buck to produce? Much cheaper than any disk drive.

Disk drives are for keeps. Blue ray is for distribution. Neither is a replacement for the other. They each have a distinct role.

Well Intel isn't buying it. The PC is not dead! - YouTube

Although they're investing heavily in Ultrabook.

Woah! That's a great link UberlegenKlient! Thanks for that

Intel did a great job pointing out the fact about "tabloids selling the story" LOL. We here at sevenforums know better than to buy that crap of a story

There is a lot of things that I do that can't be accomplished using a portable computer. I need all the processing power I can get. And that comes from a desktop computer. As far as gaming goes and the PC, a lot of my games are meant to be played on a desktop computer so I will still stick with it as long as possible.

Get back to me with "The PC is dead" when I can get a tablet with 1920x1080 resolution, 1 TB of space and a 3 GHz quad core CPU with hyper-threading. Till then, no thanks on replacing my PC with a tablet.

serious overkill. I'd be perfectly happy with 250gb of SSD space and 1.7 ghz dual core i5, myself.

Hi all
I posted on the W8 Forum (hope it's not against the rules here to mention W8) that I belive a Killer app would be a 10.1 inch PC with a detachable screen which could be used as a tablet either running W8 or android or whatever.

When the tablet was inserted back into the PC dock it would just be a 100% bog standard PC screen.

Why there isn't any of this type of hard ware apart from the ASUS which only runs android I can't understand.

If I saw a decent tablet /PC combo like I've described I'd buy it in a shot.

Cheers
jimbo

Well you can. So I guess the PC is dead for you. All you need to do is replace the SSD with a 1TB Hard Drive and you are good to go.
