Intel said this week that it doesn't believe that mobile computers will cannibalize desktops completely.
Even though the market of desktop computers is not growing as rapidly as the market of mobile computers, desktops will not cease to exist, claims Intel Corp. But chipmaker expects desktops to become more specialized and customizable, not truly universal.
"Desktops will be around for as long as you can think about computing. The larger market will, however, be for mobile computing, but there are still some categories of corporate users and consumers who want to buy a desktop,” said Rob Crooke, vice president and general manager of Intel's business client group, in an interview with IDG News Service.
