Ultra-mobile future beckons for PCs

BBCNews reports in 'Ultra-mobile future beckons for PCs' how the the desktop PC's days of dominance could be numbered as laptops and ultra-mobile PCs begin to reap the benefit of ever greater, and more efficient, computing power:

"We want to be mobile and not tethered to our desks anymore - we can take our computing power with us," said Mooly Eden, general manager of the mobile platform group at Intel.

"Today's laptops have more processing power than all the computers that took the Apollo rocket to the moon," he added.

Laptop sales are expected to overtake desktop sales around the world by 2009 as the shift to an untethered computer experience accelerates.
