    Oh look at mr fancy pants. (I kid, I kid.)

    For me it's probably "asdasdasd" or "qweqweqwe", but I try to name my files and folders properly as well.

    Well, looks like Anand (the dude behind Anandtech) just tinfoil hatted some of the whole "smartphones and tablets are the future" nonsense in relation to Intel's Haswell.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/6355/i...l-architecture

    Just read through the first page. While some of the stuff is definitely relevant and accurate, it still astounds me that people as versed as him in computing still believe this shit.

    To not believe they will replace desktops within a foreseeable future is naïve, however. I believe there will come a time where most - 80-90% - will use a tablet and not own a desktop computer. This is for homeusers. They still have office use.
    Right now, I know extremely few who even has a desktop at home. It's laptops through and through. Look at people in general, in areas of society you would not dare tread; Laptops and tablets. The desktops for home users is not doomed, but its use will keep declining. I don't think most people see that they have a use at all.

    High-end gaming is already extremely niche so it's no wonder nVidia/AMD charge $400-500+ for their best stuff. From a general PC perspective it's just not profitable to make them any cheaper, nobody is bloody buying them.
    Even from a gaming perspective only a tiny percentage are buying those cards.

    tablets are nice for doing what many people do, and that is check facebook, but when it comes to gaming, compute, office work, modeling, high productivity, etc.., a tablet will never replace a desktop, it's simply physically impossible with current tech to fit that much power in a small device,

    there is of course also ergonomics, the current chair/desk, and keyboard/mouse/monitor lend themselves to a great level of comfort, allowing the user to work/play comfortably for hours on end, my neck starts to hurt after about 10 minutes of using a tablet

    i think alot of this comes from the mass amount of people who write tech blogs, 90% of them wouldnt know a dimm of ram if you threw it at their face, yet they feel entitled to call themselves geeks and write "tech" blogs because they own an iphone (cough*mashable*cough)

    How can people even compare Tablets to Desktops, not having a physical keyboard for work is impossible.
    System Specs -
    CPU - i5 2500k @ 5ghz | CPU Cooler - RASA RX240 | Motherboard - Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3| GPU - Nvidia GTX 590|

    | Monitor - Crossover 27Q (2560x1440) | Sidewinder X4 Keyboard |

    Here is the problem though. Do you really believe 80-90% of home users don't need a system with a keyboard? Are happy with a 10 inch screen at most for multimedia? Happy not being able to burn a CD/DVD/BR?

    There's more, but you get the point. Could addons be sold to solve those issues? Sure, but then what do you essentially have? A PC. I think many fail to realize a few basic things:

    1. PC churn is at an all time low. This isn't the 80s anymore, a newly purchased desktop or notebook isn't going to need to be replaced in a year (or 5) for the average user. The more powerful machines get, the less frequently they're updated. This is more or less due to office/web browsing/itunes lacking ever increasing power requirements, it stays flat.

    2. Just because tablet sales and smart phone sales are on the rise, doesn't mean people are adopting them as their main computer platform. PC sales aren't actually moving whatsoever. For example, a 0.1% change from Q2-11 to Q2-12. At that rate, it would take a century to make a legitimate dent:

    the majority of people with the buying power to go out and buy a new computer every year don't, they view it like a couch, they have one, what do they need a new one for when the one they have works perfectly well (same with laptops), if i didn't forcibly upgrade my mom's computer every other year, she'd still be using a gateway from 1999

    most people buying tablets are not doing so as a replacement, but as a supplement to their already existing computer

    I've run out of qweqweqwe, I end up replacing some of the files.

    Now I just use them as ie. imgurumrmrg or fbbbfbbfbfb.

    Might explain why my SSD is almost at full capacity most of the time.

    The whole "desktops are doomed, doomed I say" attitude is somewhat weird to me. The way I see it it's something we'll see a lot of people do for a while, then it's just going to pan out on both sides for a good long time, then start happening again, etc.

    If there is any kind of doom for PCs, it won't be in a long time. We've hardly been through more than one-two average purchase cycles, and it's hard to judge just with that how things are going to look down the road.

    That is whenever I plan to not keep the file for long (temporary files for printing for example, they get purged every few weeks).

    I think gaming consoles are more likely to die out faster than desktop computers.

    I didn't do that I don't think, but definitely kill hibernate and move pagefile and indexing to a HDD. Opens up a pretty pro amount of space.
