But, sometimes it becomes difficult for an average consumer to maintain the pace along with tech upgrades. Forth generation chipsets, processors and displays are breaking all boundaries an average user could imagine.

However, enhancements and improvisation are doomed to happen. Imagine about a problem at massive scale that could only be solved with the help of such ultra-power packed technically advanced machines, specially in departments like Research, Science and Space.
