Back in November, we posted an infographic entitled “Humans vs Laptops – How smart is you computer?” that compared the different skills of humans against computers… the good news is, humans won out. For now!

Continuing in this vein we thought it might be interesting to think about what we could have done with laptops through the ages of time. Would the Mesopotamian scribes have been able to write down more great speeches with a laptop than with a wax tablet? What could the Roman empire have done with computers? And just think about what Leonardo Da Vinci could have accomplished if he’d replaced his paper notebook with the latest BYOD devices or Cloud Computing options that exist today.

Take a look below at our ideas. What great moments in history do you think could have benefited from access to computers?
