    Hi there
    I like the fact that loads of these "Mini PC's" come without an OS at all -- I'll bet a lot of the Bloatware providers HATE this trend.

    Cheers

    Articles headline calls it a Collapse ,and the word was change to a Decline in the rest of the article[what I read of it] ,300 million + units sold in 3 or 4 years ,if that's a collapse then I think most things we use on a daily bases are in trouble

    Yeah. I'm glad I got rid of mine. I had to reboot the damn thing every time I sent it down a flight of stairs!

    I find you have to push them though or they stop half way down. It almost seems they have got bored. I tried throwing them straight to the bottom of the stairs but it was slightly unsatisfying both for me and (presumably) the metal spring.

    EDIT: Now I'm thinking, does this observation help when considering computer operating systems. If you shove Windows XP (as a spring) does it tumble all the may to the bottom? Does windows 8 sit on the second stair and sulk?

    What scared me was I opened the case of a custom build I had someone do for me. Where one would expect the power supply, that spring was sitting there.

    Not only that, but when I tried to copy and paste in Explorer the CD door opened and this brown putty was in it.

    Yeah. But the downside of bouncing is it picks up dust. Makes it tough to get a clean copy.

    But I'll say one thing. It did morphing way before computer software.
