Re: Reddit: The Desktop PC is Ready for a Rebirth

said by DC DSL:

For a mobile/handheld device it's one thing. That form factor is intended primarily as an information consumption device with limited interactivity. Desktops are intended for the information *producer* and knowledge worker.

One of the best descriptions of the two competing technologies I have read (and will steal).

I couldn't agree more. It's fun watching Netflix on my ipad, or being able to use safari to do light browsing with limited interaction.

But when I need to actually do more than type at snails pace I hit the desktop. Video/sound editing, typing papers, remote support, and browsing is so much more comfortable with big monitors, core i7 980, 12 gig ram and 6 terabytes of hard disc space.

During Hurricane Sandy power outages, I was able to do work on my desktop hooked to the generator(albeit without internet), while the ol' ipad was dead due to the issues in the area.
