The Desktop PC Needs A Makeover

I'm not sure if the gang at the Tech Report is trolling everyone or they actually believe that mATX motherboards should be the new default for desktop motherboards. The rationale is that, because the author isn't a power user / enthusiast, the industry standard should be mATX motherboards, no optical drives, smaller PSUs and so on. eek!

  • Let's make microATX the new default for desktops.

  • Get rid of 5.25" bays. Just get rid of 'em. Optical media is dead.

  • Let's have smaller power supplies, too. Pretty much nobody needs a 1kW PSU.
