The trend in the market today as far as buying computers is going miniature. We have seen the introduction of new miniature desktops to which the demand for them is getting higher. But should this be a cause for alarm for most desktop manufacturers? Apparently there is a difference but what are the chances that the traditional desktop user would turn towards these compact computers for a change?
The answer lies on where a computer would be used and who will actually use it. For example, in the modern offices of today, it is highly unlikely you will see the traditional employee working with tablet PCs. Also, for the hardworking programmers and developers, the use of desktops is still the way to go considering that they need visualization and better control when creating programs.
The same holds true for graphics designers who are sure to prefer desktops when creating images. In all, it all boils down to use and power of the PC. Tablets can be used for navigation or perhaps entertainment. They are not designed for professional undertaking and that is something we all know. While we cannot discount tablet PCs from advancing through the years, who knows how modern computing will be by that time?
Hence, PC tablets should not even be considered by the modern IT personnel for professional use. The best that they can offer is migration of finished documents or presentation files for easy handling. But when it comes to actual work, desktops are still the bet for working wiser.
