Faster and better


Laptops will become the dominant form of computers by 2011, according to Analyst company IDC.

In a new report, the company says that as laptops become faster and efficient, demand for desktop PCs is likely to grow at a declining rate. Customers in emerging markets such as China and India are more interested in laptops than PCs, the report said.
