We’ve come a long way from the days when a computer was the size of a large room. In 1946, a computer needed an estimated 174 kilowatts to run; a modern 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro uses 43 watts—a more than 400,000% change. A tablet consumes even less.
As size and energy consumption have decreased, variety has increased. Businesses and consumers now have myriad options at their fingertips, with new features emerging every year. Need something portable? Try a laptop. Want something desk-bound but space-saving? You can browse all-in-one desktop computers or even thin clients. Just looking for something light? Try an ultrabook for a balance of power and weight.
