Computer brands in the country have come under fire from customers and competitors alike over the last few years as the technology that powers our computers has been evolving rapidly and the prices have gone up.
But as we head into the year of 2017, the tech industry’s biggest name is set to be the new home of some of the world’s biggest computers, with Dell, HP, Lenovo, Dell Maximus and Acer among the big names that will launch this year.
And while many will look to the likes of Dell and HP to get them off the ground, it’s the PC brands that have the potential to bring the industry back to a place of stability.
With the launch of the next generation Intel Atom processors, many of the big PC brands are hoping that the new processors will help to put them back on track and provide some competitive advantages.
And in the minds of some, the best PC brands in our country can only be found on laptops, desktops and gaming consoles, which all feature Intel Atom chips.
But if you’re looking to pick up some of these machines for yourself, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled as these are the products you’ll need to look at for a number of reasons.
We spoke to the chief executive of PC maker Lenovo, who spoke to News.co.uk about the current state of the PC industry and the future of its business.
News.com:How would you rate the state of consumer expectations for the year to come?
Lenovo’s chief executive, Linus Torvalds, was asked what he thought of the state the PC market was in and he said he thought that it was “an incredible year”.
He said the market was “still a very young market, and the industry is still young”, and he thinks that “as we get into the next year, things will probably be a little bit more mature, but still a young market”.
In the last 12 months, he said, “there’s been a lot of innovation in PCs, and it’s a new kind of PC”, with new designs, more powerful CPUs and new types of graphics cards.
The most recent innovation, he added, is that Intel has “done something that no other manufacturer has ever done before” and the processors are now “just really fast”.
We are now in a place where it’s possible to use the latest chips, he told News.net.au.
But there are other problems with that.
He said that there is a “huge amount of consolidation” in the PC sector and that companies are “not sharing what they need”, which means “they’re making products that they don’t need”.
In this new era of consolidation, the market for PCs “is fragmented”, he said.
“It’s just not as big a market as it used to be, and I think that there’s going to be a big problem in the next 12 months,” he said of the consumer market.
And he said that if we’re looking at the current consumer market, the PC is the most important part of the market.
We’re all trying to make sure that the PC business is thriving and that the PCs are going to stay a big part of our economy.
“The biggest thing I want to say is that it’s important for us to build the best machines that we can, because we’re not going to win that race with tablets,” he told us.
And that includes PCs, but he said “the big PC business also includes laptops”.
Lenovo is building a brand new business model for the PC and it will include a range of laptops with Intel Atom processor chips, starting at $1,399.
These laptops are aimed at the very wealthy and will be the first laptops to use Intel’s new “Turbo Boost” technology.
While the Intel Atom CPU is a significant technology leap in terms of performance and features, the cost of these computers is still prohibitive for many.
Lenovo will also launch a new range of “Ultra-thin” Ultrabooks, starting from $999.
They will be thin enough to fit in a pocket and they will include “Intel’s new HyperThreading” microarchitecture, which enables the chip to process much more processing per second than other CPUs.
As for the competition, Lenovo is expected to release a new, low-cost, laptop with Intel’s newest “Skylake” chips, which will be priced at $499.
The company will also offer a range to help “break down barriers”, including the new Acer “Cortana” laptop, priced at only $399.
And it seems as though the Acer Chromebook 11 is in a very strong position, with its “Zen” processors being cheaper than those found in many other computers.
“We are seeing a lot more competition than we used to see before, which means we are in a much better position to provide better value,” said Torvlds.
But, Torvlund also said that “we have to be
