Well folks, that just about concludes things for our coverage of Computex 2003 from Taiwan. We have one little surprise for our male audience which you will all see soon enough - watch the front page!
From our prospective, Computex 2003 was far more exciting and interesting than 2002. We have started to see what many companies are calling the "convergence" of the PC into the living room and into other parts of the house hold for not just work but complete entertainment. No longer are we just in need of raw performance - we have new genres of products such as Entertainment PC's, wireless, small form factor all beginning to make a real name for themselves and will all continue to grow popular in the market.
Buyers require new things to buy - and Computex 2003 has shown that companies have realized this and have had thinking caps on and coming up with a whole range of new possibilities for the once boring PC. If things continue the way they are going, we should see a big boom in the industry over the next 12 to 18 months with the introduction of a whole new range of exciting products for the consumer. We've been dished out extreme amounts of performance, which will continue, but it's fantastic to walk around the halls of Computex and marvel at all the fantastic ideas coming from the brains of engineering and marketing folk on this great Island and others.
Computex has been a blast as usual; we look forward to attending next year. For now though, I cannot wait to head back to Australia out of the hustle and bustle of Taiwan into the slower way of life which we enjoy Down Under.
