What Is The Future Of Desktop Computers? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Last week we asked you what you think of the new MacBook Pro. This powerful and expensive machine had the world blazing last week, some with positive opinions, some with negative. MakeUseOf readers were no different, and no clear consensus could be reached in the poll or in the comments. There was one opinion, however, that was by far the most popular.

Out of 533 votes in total, the results were as follows: 11% didn't even know the new Pro was out, a quite different 11% think the MacBook Pro looks good and are thinking of buying it, 17% think it's AWESOME, 22% don't like it (read the comments for the various reasons) and the winning answer, with 39% of the votes, is that it's probably great, but too expensive.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

So what did we learn from this week's poll? Most people actually like the new MacBook Pro, whether they think they can afford it or not. Are you surprised?


This week’s poll question is: What Is The Future Of Desktop Computers?

As the MacBook Pro discussion was heating up last week, the topic of desktops vs. laptops was broached. Reader Achraf Almouloudi asked for a poll that will deal with this subject, and this is what we'll be discussing this week. Laptops have become increasingly popular over the past 10 years, with more and more people opting to give up the desktop in favor of one. Laptops are light, portable, and have recently become quite strong and affordable. On the other hand, there are certain tasks laptops are still not strong enough for, and a 27'' monitor might not go well with them. So what do you think? Where are desktops heading?

Tell us in the comments what you use yourself, and why you believe desktops are heading where they are.
