Well we all know there is these "Small" Computers/Laptops/Netbook lookalikes but will they die out? With the number of new hardware being produced eachday it is a debatable question - But what are your opinions?

No, never. This would never happen. Desktop is not a portable platform.

Desktops are not a portable platform of computing, I understand that but would you pay an extra £200 because you want a laptop that you can carry around or build your own one for less? It's a common factor of Sense.... I wouldn't spend £200 on something ill probably only use at home anyway but i see your point it depends what your job is to what you can afford and are willing to pay

Definitely not. Laptops are great because they are portable and you can get the same amount of power in a laptop. I could purchase a blazing fast Macbook Pro and it's way more portable than my iMac. Laptops won't die.

I have a 10 inch netbook that weighs 2.5 pounds,and wouldn't trade it more a Macbook Pro or something similar.

Everybody had different needs. I do have an iMac as my main computer, but needed something I could easily take with me back and fourth to/from my mom's/dad's.

My netbook does what I expect it to do amazingly.

I think people like the portability and the ability to be connected everywhere. I don't see desktops replacing these portable devices, but only that these will be getting more and more powerful. Eventually the desktops will probably be replaced by these devices and in the future laptops will be the "anchor" chained to your desk and your smart phone or similar device will have the power and experience that your laptop gives you now.

True laptop computers will be around for a long time mainly because, nowadays, their power is reasonably close to that of desktops.

Currently, Netbooks & similar under powered “cheapo” laptop wannabe’s won’t last forever. They’re too under powered for many applications.

But at the current speed of technological advancement, If they stick around long enough, Netbooks could become closer to full fleged laptops power wise.

i know more people using laptops for gaming now a days, i think the pc will eventually die off in the consumer market, but it will stay around in the corporate market because of price and obviously it is harder to steal.

Any real geeky person will own a desktop, laptop, netbook and a fancy cell phone/blackberry etc, probably in Windows, Linux, Android and Apple flavours. A full compliment of Games consoles and things like Nintendo DS and PSP as well. If in doubt - just get all of them!
