pragmatechie, I respectfully disagree. Certainly professionals like yourself will have a desktop nearby for a long time. But alas we will be the minority - if you look at who is buying technology these days, it is tilted to the consumer. Take a look at Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. They all have reduced the number of desktop models recently. Consumers want simple and mobile, desktops are neither - and sales are way down. One logical alternative for consumers with mobile devices: a NAS box with a private cloud fills the void - easy to set up, multi-terabyte space, streams to any device, plus easy-to-configure private cloud out of the box. Iomega, Buffalo, etc. are all getting on the bandwagon. Their mobile device does not hold much data, so they can just use their private cloud to NAS at home, and have all their stuff whever they go. Provided they have internet connection, that is.
