New Computer Designs to Watch

Tired of the same-old same-old with desktops and laptops? Check out this nifty summary from CIO.com covering Blade PC's, OQO Modular PC, Integrated PCs, and Adaptable Notebooks.

I've never been a fan of integrated PC's. While it saves space and might make sense for public/kiosk settings, try cleaning out the integrated printer after a cartridge explodes inside. It's not pretty.

A good point: Although these new designs may not reach the masses, some features point to the future of computing. I'd say the key points we can expect are portability, space savings, and adaptability.
