Probably will become more of a novelty than it already is over the next few years.

Not even close. Maybe for the average person.

No, they're just too busy working on kids toys called "tablets"

>> No.56300066


For the average consumer yes. Most people turn to phones or tablets for their day to day shit. Nobody is buying a desktop to browse the internet or read their email anymore. There's still enough of a market to sustain them though. Desktops probably aren't going to go away in the office any time soon and the gaming market is always going to be big money.

>> No.56300131

Its all about mobile devices and cloud based software these days.

>> No.56300325

The biggest reasons desktops are alive are businesses, and gaming. Until there are better alternatives than desktops for these, they won't die.

nice mouse you have there, nice video editor you have there, nice apache server you have there, nice multitasking functions you have there.

No, the enthusiast market is just fine. Nobody cares about normie dell/gateway box shit.

>> No.56300493


>> No.56300509

I can't deal with it.

I never do any cloud shit its just weird to me.

When I installed Windows 10 it automatically put all my music in my SkyOne or whatever and it scared the shit out of me. How did it move stuff from my external archive (that just happened to be plugged in) into the cloud? Deleted that crap and installed Linux. I've never felt so violated.

The people who stop using desktops weren't never a large part of the desktop user share to begin with. Gaming/Server/Work will always keep desktops alive.

Not really, no.

>> No.56305894

Even at companies it's mostly laptops anymore. They can be carried between meetings and checked out to take home for extra work.

For consumers, it's all just phones and maybe a tablet. I've seen people do college courses on their phones.

Unless someone needs a GPU for something, they probably don't have a desktop.

Every single desk in my company has a desktop with at least 2 monitors. Laptops are for FAGS.

>> No.56306143

We had laptops with docking stations and 2 screens.
Being able to take them to meetings and home was quite useful, though you could also remote into your work machine.
