I don't expect huge changes, but I definitely expect some regarding FOV because it can drastically increase immersion. 220 degrees around and ~140 up/down would be ideal.

FOVE is leading the eye tracking race, and I'm sure we'll see it implemented, since it has the potential to drastically reduce the gpu load. With a larger FOV, the periphery really does not require anywhere near as much detail which would be a plus also.

I'm fully expecting VR to become an office and household staple by 2020. The biggest technological hurdle to it will be in providing input for the other senses.

FOV improvement and eye tracking will definitely improve VR in many ways. Good point on the GPU load. That would be a huge plus. I hope we don't have to wait too long. 2020 seems reasonable for the technology to become realised for more of the population.

I just recently scrapped 8 way outdated (XP era) desktops + a bin full of parts, but only because I picked up 4 laptops, and 7 desktops from my work that were getting scrapped!

The 4 laptops are complete Lenovo Thinkpad T140s with docking stations and power supplies. And the desktops are all complete Lenovo Thinkcentres (M58 I think).

Just got Win 7 x64 Ultimate installed and updated all the laptops, and will start on the desktops soon. Took longer than I wanted, due to the Win 7 update issues that Microsoft has. After I found the workarounds, it went a lot faster.

I'm a bit of a retro computer / Apple II person.

When I was down in Texas I had over 200 Apple II computers for a while from school auctions. Since then I've paired it down to less than a dozen.

Plus the half a dozen mac of various flavors.

Some of the old Apple II cards are worth a forture (TranswarpGS, CFFA3000) and there is a thriving community like with many other retro computing models (Amiga, C64, etc)

There are NEW cards and devices still coming out for most retro computers including the Apple II every month or two. I just bought a IIc+ memory card from a2heaven.com that was released in the past month.

It has 1 meg of memory for $69.99 - That will get you a 256gb SDxc card in the current world Funny how things change.
