Google "After reading all the reviews, and talking to people who actually wore Glass, I just see a product plagued by bugs, and of questionable use, that's generating a lot of buzz because people want so desperately to have some new gadget to latch onto, and fear being wrong about the next major technology trend." Nobody wants a computer in their home. Nobody wants a cell phone and always be connected. Nobody wants an iPhone. The current version of this line? Nobody wants Glass. "I haven't worn Glass." Oh right.

I've been using laptops for a few years, but recently decided to build a tower. (Due to maintenance concerns, as your post suggested.) The performance difference between a mid-range laptop and a low-end tower shocked me. People may be claiming that any computer is powerful enough these days, but it's sheer nonsense if you value your time.

So count me in the "retro" camp too. I'll take better over gimmickier any day. And since Google Glass just happens to be the latest gimmick ...

MacTO,

"I've been using laptops for a few years, but recently decided to build a tower. (Due to maintenance concerns, as your post suggested.) The performance difference between a mid-range laptop and a low-end tower shocked me"

I prefer desktops too, they're not only easier to upgrade and fix (I've been using the same cases for over a decade), but they're also much cheaper and more powerful. I have a strong preference for the screen/keyboard/mouse ergonomic layouts of desktop PCs. My interactions are noticeably slower on my laptop, which I never-the-less have been using more often since my workspace has been moved into the garage to make room for our firstborn.
