    Intel has decided that it would stop making motherboards for desktop by end of 2016. Though it can be said it wont affect the market much since Intel motherboards are not the only player in the section but there are no end to choice for desktop mainboard. Intel want to focus on other markets besides desktop. This points out the future of desktop may not be as bright as other devices. However the desktop will continue to be part of devices capable of productivity.

    It isn't about where it is manufactured, the manufacturer will produce according to the specifications of the company get the product manufactured. Takes phones for an example, Foxonn manufactures some of the best phones iin the market and also some of the worst. So it's all about the :money: .

    I bought Intel motherboards on two occasions way back in 99-2000. The build quality was impressive, however yes the BIOS has and always is restricted.

    As an vendor Intel makes sense to companies and organizations installing desktops in their offices due to the package deals etc. You won't find them buying individual components and assembling them.

    However there has been a shift in this as well with companies switching to laptop modules that allows their workers to carry their work everywhere they go.

    This decline and shift is also causing a drop in requirements.

    The future is even more portable. Pretty soon we'll carry all our work in our cellphone, hook it up to a LCD and keyboard at work and to a similar dock at home. :p
