Another year, another fascinating chapter in the computer world. In 1999, we saw desktop computer prices take a nose dive, feather-light mininotebooks grow in popularity and PDAs with wireless Internet access come onto the scene. Now more than ever, specialized computing solutions exist for every possible user, from the desktop worker to the true road warrior to the occasional traveler just wanting remote access to the Internet and e-mail.
What can you expect from this arena in 2000? How will the box sitting on your desk differ from years past? What nifty microcomputer will you be carrying around next year? Many of the new form factors of recent days will go mainstream next year. And other computing concepts--well, we'll just have to wait and see . . .
