"Good Enough" Computers Are the Future 515

An anonymous reader writes "Over on the PC World blog, Keir Thomas engages in some speculative thinking. Pretending to be writing from the year 2025, he describes a world of 'Good Enough computing,' wherein ultra-cheap PCs and notebooks (created to help end-users weather the 'Great Recession' of the early 21st century) are coupled to open source operating systems. This is possible because even the cheapest chips have all the power most people need nowadays. In what is effectively the present situation with netbooks writ large, he sees a future where Microsoft is priced out of the entire desktop operating system market and can't compete. It's a fun read that raises some interesting points."

Comment Gaming Laptop for the win. (Score 1) 236

A couple quality gaming notebooks along w/ NAS style of storage. (BlacX w/ your Hitachi TB drives.) Using Solar along side deep cycle batteries + inverter might help you juggle your power losses.
Each notebook should have be able to host at least 3 moderate guest machines.
Setting up a scenario like this is not cheap if your talking under 10G.

*grab a small Honda generator also.

I Feel like i'm taking Crazy Pills! HP was never, nor will they ever be in the gaming pc market.
No remotely-serious gamer would use one of those machines.
Because of this, any opinions from HP are null, -or so abstract they require a post like this...
