Slim, sleek, and custom-built machines that can take you anywhere around the web you need to go. They are faster than ever before. Computers have come a long way and continue to be at the top of the market. Some are even small enough to fit in your back pocket! With technology getting better and better, so do computers. They have gone through so many generations including the past, present, and future.
Computers are amazing pieces of technology, but with our country growing up so fast, most of the newer generations have never seen dial-up. The slow, crappy dial-up, not having enough RAM to play games, and processor speeds back then would crash your computer more often than present day. If you could get on what you wanted to do, you weren’t doing it for very long. The power supplies could sometimes overheat, causing some real damage to the inside of your PC. Older computers are better left in the closet and away from sight because they aren’t worth your time and certainly not worth the money.
Today’s computers are faster than they’ve ever been. With a larger amount of storage and RAM on the computer, you are able to do a lot more. This includes being able to see more colors. Games are smoother on these modern-day operating systems. Your programs will not crash on you as much, and it definitely won’t overheat anymore. Slimmer, sleeker designs get people all riled up over the up and coming computers.
Scientists are predicting that computers of the future will be holographic. Whether it is a little projector that you carry with you, or it is an entire desk, it would still be so cool to touch something that isn’t there. Monitors will be in the wall and turned on using voice commands. Not only all of this, but you will not need an actual desktop or laptop anymore. It will all be sold as a single holographic box!
Computers have come a long way, and I don’t see them going away anytime soon. Mostly everyone uses a computer at least once a day. They are one of the most widely used pieces of technology in modern society. They are also still leading the markets in technology over smart phones, cars, and gaming consoles. Computers are still going to rule the technology game, because of their past, present, and future computers.
