Yeah, I've got a computer.

It's getting to that point where some people may have one computer for quite some time. Instead of a Dell Optiplex 755 with 4Gb of RAM and blah...blah...blah.... It's going to be, yeah I've got a computer, right by the DVD player and the toaster.

The new hard drives are now 1.5TB. Next year's processors will have 8 cores, with multi threading, that essentially 16 processors running at 3-4GHz. RAM is also now getting very large and very cheap. You can get 2GB for $50. And that's the good stuff!!!

In two years, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see computers with 5TB hard drives, 32GB of RAM, Intel Core 2 Octo processors with 16 virtual cores, GPUs (video cards for the un-initiated) integrated into the chipset that can compete with the cards out today, and optical storage hitting 200GB per disc.

Heck, if it weren't for Microsoft making completely bloated OS's, I could still be using my dual PII 400 with 768MB of ram for everyday tasks.

With USB 3.0 coming out at 800MB/s, the only things that you will buy for your computer will be everything that connects to it. Displays, storage devices, input devices, etc...

I just can't wait to see what I'll have in two years... 100TB of magnetic storage, 1TB of instant flash memory storage, 128GB of RAM, two 26" OLED displays that are 1/2" thick ...it's gonna rock!!!!
