Google just announced they are offering fully maintained notebook running chromeOS with full office apps and 24x7 business grade support for $28/month. Initially in 7 countries
This includes the hardware, well this could means goodbye for the whole IT departments.

ok, suppose the whole IT department is 100% outsourced to 3rd world country for the remote helpdesk, using cloud computing is very affordable and cheap solution :-)

I can see it in some situations, but no one is going to want confidential data on those things. Maybe this is viable at the SMB level. Or maybe something for use in the sales force, but not anything that has to follow any sort of regulations like HIPAA.
+1 yes I agree with you, for a big company with more than 100+ users or banking and financial services, that is a dark cloud which must be cleared :-)

Basically imagine, what I and many of us are going threw on this forum. We have problems with our specific computer setups, so we ask questions. Somebody who knows what the problem might be or has a suggestion comes along to slove the problem. In combination we research to find the problem. Not to just test our abilities as Techies, but in case we ever end up in a sticky situation like the problemeer. Afterwards we send the data to a forum, or website, so we can help each other.
However in cloud computing we basciallly combine
Website / database
threads / forums .............and dorkbook
This is what most os us do on this website with our computers. We have a problem, we fix it, and then we put the solution in a text file. The proccess repeat itself. However when things get crazy we have an entire back up of what we need when we need it.
About help desk from India. The problem is the internet. With the internet we all have gained knowledge we never needed to know, and it has help us, and defeated us at many times. With the so called internet we have limited the need to even go outside. This is the problem, we have with the world.
