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?

I'm not a hardcore whiteboxer. I just build them once, often from barebones kits. I wont touch them again unless there is a problem. Its more satisfying to know exactly what's in the box.

Although... I also have a Mac book. But it still allows me to upgrade the memory, hard drive and battery. I've upgraded all but the battery, and it's much better after my modifications. Its still running OSX, but its getting used less and less. When I do use it, I typically hook it up to a 24 inch monitor and usb keyboard and mouse.
