LAS VEGAS -- At CES 2016, we're getting a good look at the PC trends poised to shape the market in the coming year. Examples include hybrid devices and products built with mobile customers in mind.
Several tech giants took the opportunity to display new Windows 10 PCs at this year's show. HP, Dell, LG, Lenovo, and Acer all showcased devices from feather-light laptops to 360-degree hybrids.
The 2-in-1 model is a trend that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon, a sign that companies are adjusting their product lineups to accommodate consumers on the go. This is also supported by the prevalence of thinner and more lightweight devices like the LG Gram, which weighs a mere 2.16 pounds.
Perhaps the trend of building lighter hybrid devices can help the PC industry, which has continued to struggle as smartphones dominate consumers' tech preferences.
While CES is a consumer show, several devices on display were geared toward an enterprise audience. Acer launched a new PC for mobile workers, for example, and Lenovo updated two of its products with business-friendly features.
Here, we take a closer look at some of the laptops announced this week at CES. Would you think about buying any of these models in 2016, or wait for more innovation to come?
