Did you know that today's smartphones have roughly the same computing power as the powerful desktops of 2005?

Agree. But what about screen size & hard disc capacity? What about the multitasking features?

TOPIC STARTER
Smartphone vs. Computer May 2, 2013

In my opinion, a smartphone can never beat a computer. The only question is how much of it can a smartphone imitate?

Laptop replacement in some ways May 28, 2013

Usually when I am out and about away from the office or on vacation (when I don't need to do actual translations), I can carry my smartphone and answer e-mails, check files, agree to deadlines - basically do everything I used to need a laptop for. That's worth the price of admission to me.
