Predictions for laptop technology in 2023 and beyond include ever-decreasing form factors, increased portability and battery life, enhanced keyboards with responsive keys that are more sensitive to varying touch-amount pressure than traditional mechanical keyboards, complete integration of multiple technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) applications, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), cloud computing, blockchain technology, 5G cellular networks etc. As a given, I’d like to mention faster processors, longer battery life and increased storage capacity. Because of all these advances, I anticipate that laptops will become thinner as well, allowing for easier portability and a more sleek design.
Laptops will also be incorporating advanced graphics cards allowing them to run multimedia projects flawlessly while delivering immersive gaming experiences at relatively high quality settings. Virtual Reality (VR) applications are likely to be increasingly integrated into laptops over the next few years, enabling new types of immersive experiences on-the-go. Furthermore, new material science innovations have the potential to revolutionize laptop design by making use of lighter yet stronger materials so they can become even more portable without sacrificing strength or durability. Even further out in time, we may see quantum computing making its way onto consumer devices such as laptops in order to utilize extremely powerful computing power that is far beyond what regular CPUs can currently offer.
How plausible is the given tech these days?
Of course it’s still an unknown. It is impossible to predict the exact features, devices, and technology of laptops in 2023 and beyond. However, it is likely that advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) will be incorporated into laptop design; AI-powered processors could enable faster processing speeds with more efficient power usage while also providing a more intuitive user experience through natural language processing capabilities such as voice recognition and facial recognition. Additionally, since laptops are becoming increasingly important tools for work and leisure activities, their overall capability should increase significantly over time both in terms of form factor and internals.
I personally use the fingerprint recognition for both my phone and my laptop to unlock its features as that is the highest form of security at the moment. Retina features can easily be unlocked with high-quality still photos of the user’s eye.. at least that’s what I’ve seen on the forums of hackers that are able to get their hands on them.
Why get something so High-Tech?
Everyone has their reasons for a system that revolves around their everyday world. If you’re using your laptop for basic business or office software, there is a big difference from those that need their device to carry out the processing power for heavy video editing or even for simple leisure, like playing graphic-heavy games. Gaming laptops these days have a hefty price because of the chips involved in the process of building the main boards that integrate these technologies. Most sleeker models of laptops have everything integrated or soldered onto the motherboard, meaning that they are not replaceable parts. Of course, if you’re just using your device for office software, you won’t need these things but speed is key when it comes to being efficient with the everyday work process.
If one part of that board has a defect, you’ll need to repair the whole board itself just to see what the issue is, especially if you’re trying to access the data on the board where the storage unit itself is a part of that main board.
So.. Where are we heading?
Personally, I’d like to think that everything is heading in the right direction. Our world has always grown with the ever expanding technologies, but as we advance, security will always be an issue. Cyber security will always be an issue, but it’s another technology that’s not related to the hardware space. I’d like to think that these advances will only make our lives easier as it’s done in the past. After all, we live in a world where we have several technologies on a single device that we carry in our pocket everyday.
Want me to be honest?
I’d like to think I’m an expert at all things, tech-wise.. but to be honest, I wanted to see if AI would actually be able to write this blog for me in our world of instant AI gratification. And guess what, the AI system did have a code out to scour the internet to summarize this blog, yes. But, as robots are, it was not personalized nor people-friendly. The tech that’s involved with these things is amazing now, but people are still needed for the personal touch.
