I believe that in the future of computers, due to increasingly stupid people considering computers "too difficult" to operate, will be something like this. Right now, you make your computer better by adding ram, overclocking your processor, or buying a bigger harddrive. Stuff that requires at least basic knowledge of how to turn a screwdriver and remove parts. Needless to say, this is far too difficult for the average human mind to comprehend right now. As such, when dell/compaq/whatever top computer company there is nowadays realize this, they will simplify computers. Instead of all that technobabble like "ram" and "ddr3", computers will be much simpler. A computer will be a small box with several plugs and receptacles. In order to make your computer fail less, you will simply take ANOTHER box and plug it into your first box, thust making your computer "2 boxes strong". Supercomputers could have hundreds or thousands of these boxes, and different companies would make boxes of different caliber. for example, someone could simply hook up their monitor to a $50 box, and play solitaire or multiplayer notepad. Then, when they realize that they're failures at life for having a $50 computer, they will go out and buy another box of similar pricing, possibly giving them enough power to use dialup! Then they decide to try and play Mass Effect 3 on their computer, which subsequently blows up. So they go out and buy a $1000 box/group of boxes, hook the rig up, and play it flawlessly. No longer will people have to call geek squad or their friend who knows about computer. Instead, they can simply upgrade their rigs themselves with the plug of a box! At least it makes sense to me.
