Top 100 Computer Trends in 2020

From Immersive Gaming Monitors to Productivity-Boosting Laptops

— January 17, 2021 — Tech
The 2020 computer trends cover everything from the latest PCs for gamers, to modern laptop designs that were specifically made to be as portable as possible.

ASUS UX325 ZenBook made its debut this year, providing consumers with a lightweight and durable laptop that's ideal for commuters who have to pack their gear throughout the city. The laptop is just 2.35 pounds and 13.9 millimeters thick, but boasts 32 gigabytes of RAM and a 67-Wh battery capacity.

Another notable release is the CORSAIR VENGEANCE i4200 gaming computer, a powerful PC that was created for eSports fans. The specialized computer offers a 10th generation Intel Core processor and an ATX motherboard, providing users with an incredibly fast and responsive performance so that they can truly immerse themselves in the game's environment.
