Tablets are the future and they don't need USB ports.


Good luck hooking up your USB printer, scanner, mouse, keyboard, SD card reader and game controller to a tablet.

hardly, there is many things I do on my pc that cant be done on a tablet.



Sure, but not for much longer.


Smoking crack there son. Maybe you want to go into the business of peddling leathermen to auto mechanics.



I don't think so. Tablets have already replaced 90% of what you can do with a PC and thrived beyond in comfort and accessibility.


It's only a matter of time before we move over to tablet based computers for everything from typing a paper to heavy programming and graphics work.


Translation: I don't need a desktop computer to surf Facebook and random picture sites. Tablets can handle that.

Ok peasant. You enjoy that.

Wireless is the future.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

That's all wireless now, do you think you'd actually plug a printer into a computer these days?

Actually, I'm very sure that every thing you noted has wireless versions that I could connect to on my Surface.

I agree though. I'd think it already would be kind of mainstream by now, but it still seems like a novelty feature for newer high-end products.

I don't like 'touch keyboard'
It's terrible.

I type fairly fast. About 100wpm+
Of course on a table / phone / touch screen?

It goes down by a lot.
Mainly because I'm typing so fast that I make a small error such as 'eror' and auto-correct changes it to erection or something.

It's ridiculous. Then you have to 'touch' between the letters and that HUGE arrow never gets it right the first time or the third time.

Even so, I like my keyboard + mouse quite well. Plus touch screen video games suck lol.

There is a chick that is proud to be a pretty fast 'texter' though.
I saw it on the news.
