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?

Yea but you can plug those devices into a notebook.

I used to switch between desktop and notebook but I got sick of maintaining two workspaces.


Really? You've got Workstation class Xeon or Opteron CPUs in your laptop? You've got Quadro or Tesla GPGPUs from Nvidia, or ATi FirePro/FireGL or AMD Firestream GPGPUs inside your laptop?

You've got 2 or 4 socket motherboards for your laptop?

Very few actually have a need for that hardware.
