Top 30 Computer Trends in February

From Rugged Convertible Laptops to DIY Computer Kits

— February 24, 2018 — Tech
The top February 2018 computer products are a representation of how modern-day devices are becoming smaller and more capable than ever, as well as hyper-targeted to specific purposes.

As consumers are ever-seeking powerful computing solutions that are ideal for on-the-go use, innovations like the SanDisk 1TB USB-C Stick were announced at CES 2018, giving consumers the ability to easily store and carry around massive amounts of data. Similarly, tech leaders are launching ultra-slim designs like the 2018 Acer Swift 7 laptop and even accessories like the ZAGG Slimbook iPad Pro Case that transform tablets into laptop-like systems.

In the same way that the smartphone has become a do-it-all device, computers are becoming better equipped to carry out specific functions. This is exemplified by the VR-ready Intel Hades Canyon NUC and the highly customizable kid-friendly coding kits from Kano.
