Editorial A few years ago I wrote on OSNews several articles (1,2) about workstations. After three years I had to stop, because there were no workstations left on the market, they became legacy and were not sold any more. Now with the rise of mobile devices with touchscreen and wireless network connectivity virtually everywhere, the question becomes valid, what will happen with the desktop computers, are they still needed, or will they follow the workstations on their way to computer museums?

Just a dumb question:

how much did you pay for your laptop and how many desktops with equal or better performance can you get for that?

Doesn't matter because I need a notebook for mobility and since my current notebook has ample performance there is no point in me keeping multiple workspaces.

Desktops are good if you need a quad core but it's a very tiny percentage of the population that can actually make use of one. Gamers and modelers mostly.
