Well, which will win? Will the notebook computer ever go away, or will it just lose some of its audience to the ubiquitous tablet?
This article on C|NET addresses that very question. It's a good look at how technology changes over time. Just imagine how this would not have even been a debatable possibility without wireless internet being so prevalent. I remember having to dial-up using the on board laptop modem in my Toshiba when I worked in the corporate world. That is all nearly unnecessary, now.
So really, it leaves me wondering: what will the next formative development be in near-future technology? If you know or have any ideas, please let me know!
