Wireless Computers

June 25, 2009

We talk about wireless computers, but how wireless can a computer really be with today’s technology?

On a desktop system:

Your mouse and keyboard can be wireless.
Your internet can be wireless.
Your speakers, headphones, and microphone can be wireless.

But that’s pretty much it.

You still have to have a power cord going from the A/C outlet to your computer.
Your monitor needs a power cord and it has to have a cord going to the computer.

The closest thing to a wireless computer is a laptop. But it’s not totally wireless because you still need a power cord to charge the battery. But when the battery is charged up, it’s completely wireless. New technology is in the works for wireless power so that they power cord to your computer and monitor could be eliminated. But that technology is still years away.
