    So.. I was watching an episode on TV with the series hosted by Morgan Freeman on science and realized that a "quantum" macbook pro could come to us by Apple as soon as 2030 when die shrink has gone to 1 NM...

    Sure hope I can live until then to see it :D

    Haha I think 2030 is probably a little optimistic, just based on how these new technologies go, but it would be awesome to see quantum computing go consumer tech.

    It's going to be an interesting couple of decades. The intel roadmap has 5nm chips by 2020 (not that far off!) You can only go so small with silicon, after that who knows what we will be using.

    Hmm I don't know. Quantum computing isn't faster for common, classical computing usage; it's only faster for specific tasks that require large amounts of parallelism (e.g., factoring large numbers—useful for cryptography).

    Not faster yet. Wait till they perfect communication by quantum entanglement!
