The Future of Home Computers.

Computers have come in all different shapes and sizes. The future of home computers. What used to take up an entire room can now easily fit in someone's back pocket. Besides our phones and tablets, a home computer that has been an essential item in American homes over the past decade-plus. With all the advances in portable technology, what is the future of the home pc? Is it the end of desktop computers as we know it, or is there still a desirable fan base for the possibly nostalgic machines?

To answer that question, we have to remember the home computer's main goal which is connecting the user to the Internet. Of course, a home pc has many other qualities, but its top priority is that of connecting its consumers to everything else via the World Wide Web. As technology progressed, computers gained new tasks and purposes such as being used as a multimedia tool (making/playing movies, gaming, editing photos, etc.). This has made the home computer's main purpose sit on the back burner as other; more portable devices could connect consumers to the same exact internet.

A home computer has many various purposes that can service many different needs in households, but developers will need to kick their games up in this ever-expanding field. Companies like Microsoft, a company most famous for its operating systems for home computers, are constantly updating products like their X-Box gaming system to rival PC gamers.

A home PC holds the advantage for now, but how long will their reign stay true? A constant evolution of technology could come as a refresher for the home computer. The future could bring HAL-like homes, without the mishaps. Something like a computer powered home is still a ways away, but PC technology is ever creeping on that doorstep!

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
