Future Computer Considered in 2010
In truth desktop systems probably wouldn’t exist, being far too cumbersome so this system will actually all fit inside a clock on your mantlepiece. Except mantlepieces will be considered so passe that the clock will have to sit on the floor. Here the clock will gather far too much dust so will be moved back onto a desk. Hence, the replacement desktop system.
A Brooklyn [yes, as in Beckham] 2030, carbon fibre micro case with AMD [touchy] ZZR series 38.9THz triple-quad-bus bio-platform, running through 56k DOS, on 93Gb TAM [total access memory] and 22,222Mb standard video RAM boosted with a 4D-VR 39Gb acceleration card giving graphics from a 16377 x 9212 DLP4 screen utilising 32 million and one colours. They found another one - Hurrah!.
Storage is a bio-neural vector imaging carbofile with immeasurable capacity pseudo-hard drive utilising aluminium organospheres but still no room for those ultra HD3D video files. Outside access is via a 4649M video-modem through we-will-actually-pay-YOU-fifty-Eurodollars-serve.com. Still uploading at about 33k usually.
Software is Air-con [which is proving much better than Windows] whilst audio is supplied through a multi-phase version 6.947.34a amp with graphics displayed on a widescreen 73" plasma projector SCD with Dolbyson Pro-logisense sensurround implant flat mini-speakers with three separate built-in giga-woofers. Boooooooooooooooooooooooom!.
RolexPro Diamonte with Apple-chip processor and superlite mini-screen, glued to inside of contact lens with thought activated inputs. Solar powered, with 11-month backup battery, developed by the Norwegians, unsurprisingly.
Having finally run out of every single combination of words starting with i Jonny Ives has finally allowed Steve Jobs to use the j moniker. However the now Lord Ives had his design workshop reconfigured so perfectly that he cannot find the door handle and hasn’t been seen for years. As a result the now US President Jobs had to head up the design for the jMac and it looks like a pair of old jeans with a black turtleneck top for a screen. Shares in Apple have fallen and may drop as low as $50m dollars each.
Resorted to using my original Canon Bubble-jet, although I have now changed the ink cartridge.

It is interesting to note that in 2018 a 22 or 39Gb video acceleration cards, a 16377 x 9212 screen, 73" projector and Apple-chip processors [or very similar in each case] are already manufactured
