Just saying that those of us that actually produce stuff and/or perform tasks beyond crap like Facebook have a legitimate need for PCs and other such multi-purpose interfaces; tablets and smartphones are designed only to consume in very simple and pre-determined ways.

You're right, people like us that produce stuff, a smart TV is a gimmick (a nice one, but a gimmick), but for the mainstream populous they for-fill everything someone could need. Producing 'traditional' desktops with keyboards, mice and swappable components will become niche and probably more expensive.

Vista Home Premium, contemplating moving to Linux

I don't see main stream employers allowing tablets for everyday work. Many of my computer users want large screens, over 20 inch, to do their work. No tablet has those.

If the day comes with a regualr keyboard and a large 20 inch screen on tablets, then they wil see use in business offices.

There is always the Ghost in the Shell (movie) gambit with direct mind-computer interfaces. Even then, the prediction isn't everyone going that route.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Tocks are mobile only while the ticks have desktop versions. Or is the tick the die shrink?

As I said, the desktop won't disappear but it is shrinking.

Integrated CPU

Hello Y'all
As this is my first comment on a post(and probably way too late!) I'll keep it brief.
I think the simple answer is not to buy a mobo with an integrated CPU until you are forced to out of necessity. This may give the mfrs something to think about.

Always consider passive resistance before kicking hell out of authority

Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?
Hi all Yes, that's about it really... Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel. So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too? I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).
