Here's my predictions. Make fun of me, but we'll see. 1) Desktops (except gaming desktops) will go the way of the dinosaurs. Those annoying little netbooks will become commonplace. 2) SSD technology will become common, especially in laptops. 3) 500 gig HDDs will become "only medium-sized," and the HDD sizes will reach at least several terabytes. 4) Linux will get a larger market share. Several people will attempt to release Linux viruses but it doesn't quite work right 5) Laser printers will become smaller, and also be able to print color. This way, they become more suitable for home users. 6) It won't be unusual to stuff 16 or 32 gigs of RAM into one machine.
