Consumers are attracted to no-frills, affordable versions of tech products

Implications - The ubiquity of tech culture and tech products is influencing a consumer demand for more affordable goods. Whether it be lightweight tablets or smartphones designed for long-term value, the tech industry, previously seen as somewhat elite and inaccessible, is making a turn for the inexpensive. This affordability not only applies to the tech market, but could more broadly influence typically high-end markets like fashion or auto.
