20 Compact Computers And Wee PCs

 - Mar 17, 2009   Updated: Apr 18 2011
These compact computers and wee PCs prove that in the world of gadgets, bigger is not necessarily better. These tiny technological wonders are global in their reach, from inexpensive netbooks meant for impoverished children in third world countries to powerful wrist-worn, pocket-sized and otherwise diminutive computers meant for individuals on the go.

Implications - In today's hectic, chaotic society, simple function enhancements on gadgets will not suffice. The busy consumer needs something that is portable and friendly for a fast-paced life, thus, technological companies are constantly finding ways to make their products smaller and slimmer. This also feeds into the minimalist aesthetic that is so popular right now.
