If the speedy evolution of computers is anything to go by, you can never say what new gadget will be out in the market tomorrow. Who would have ever thought the very first gigantic computers would give way to the mobile models of today not to mention the various new features and ease of  using them being widely accepted by each and everyone across the world.

When the desktop was first introduced it was considered a marvel and although some people looked at it with a great deal of suspicion, it wasn’t long before the majority  wanted to learn how to operate it and suddenly the rush was on for everyone to buy their own desktop for personal use. With the PC gaining widespread acceptance the size of the computer started to shrink while its power increased and very soon these almost brainy machines were taking over the world.

Those early day computers looked ungainly with their bulky CRT monitors, and huge towers, that were all part of a package which also consisted of a keyboard and a mouse Although the personal computer has not yet been dumped as obsolete, very few people can be seen using them with more and more new users turning their sights to the Laptop and Notebook, mostly because of the ease of carrying them everywhere and also because no one wanted to be identified as an “old nerd” who used a pre-historic desktop computer.

It was quite sometime after the desktop that the Laptop came on the scene and everyone was going bananas over its futuristic design, its size and its portability calling it one of the greatest inventions ever. It was considered “cool” to hug a sleek looking laptop to your bosom and the obvious glances of envy from onlookers when it was opened in public was enough to keep the owner basking in its glory for days.

The Notebook followed close on its heels and apart from its cute size and not having a built in CD Rom, there was hardly any difference between the two and being light of weight and smaller than a Laptop, it was considered an ultra portable device that was ideal for travel. Next it was the turn of the Netbook and everyone was going gaga over it because it was the perfect computer for web browsing and light work while being relatively inexpensive and had a very long battery life. Its future however seems to be very uncertain as a result of its ridiculously low 1GB RAM and crammed keyboard being rejected by most consumers looking for something more wholesome.

It is in this backdrop that one should look at the All in One PC  which has multiple components within one unit and can be simply   plugged into a power source.  Its main disadvantage however is that it cannot be upgraded or customized since its internal hardware is located at the rare of the visual display unit and permanently attached to the motherboard.

Finally we come to the Mobile PC which continues to flourish with Apple being far ahead of its closest competitor in the field. The Mobile PC better known as the Tablet PC is also a laptop computer but with more functions and a movable touch screen.  Whenever the touch screen is not available a digital pen can be used to write on the screen where handwriting automatically converts to text. If nothing else, they’re smart and neat and the ideal computer for those on the go all the time.
