Top 50 Computer Trends in October

From 4K Media Streamers to Multi-Network Routers

— October 25, 2015 — Tech
Power and portability are two main concerns that many of the October 2015 computer concepts address. Personal computers are now getting smaller than ever, with many new devices comparable to the size of a small USB or a router.

In order to attain the best features of a mighty desktop computer and an easily transportable laptop, the Pipo X9 was created. This device speaks to the compromise that many consumers are unwilling to make in their demands for high processing power in a lightweight form.

Taking this concept further is the Lian-Li PC-TU300, a computer-luggage piece that is extremely easy for programmers to transport virtually anywhere in the world. These hybrid computers provide consumers with an unmatched amount of flexibility for usage.
