Laptop technology is constantly upgrading and innovating, sometimes so fast that Moore’s Law can’t keep up. The laptops from just a few years ago are already outdated and not able to keep up with the latest customer needs. That’s why savvy customers are constantly upgrading to the latest model.
If you are thinking about purchasing a laptop and wondering what kind of new innovations you can look forward to, keep reading our article below.
Bezels Be Gone
A bezel is the frame of the device around the edge of the display. It serves to hide all electronic circuitry and wiring and protects against impact. If you used to wonder why your display couldn’t go all the way to the edge of your computer screen, now you know.
But the great thing about innovations in laptop technology is that new laptops have almost non-existent bezels (they are squeezed out to almost nothing). The display can thus go almost to the edge of the screen and give you a wider view while browsing.
This means that your laptop won’t necessarily have to get heavier or larger to give you a wider screen. And your back won’t suffer as you carry a larger laptop around to get that larger screen. Bravo!
Fingerprint Reader and Face Detection Technology
If you are the kind of person who is forever forgetting their password and getting locked out of your laptop, this innovation will be your savior. With fingerprint readers and face detection technology, you never have to worry about remembering a password.
Nor do you have to worry about someone else accessing your laptop because they got hold of your laptop and were able to guess your password. You could be lucky enough to remotely lock your computer in time (if your laptop has that capability) when stolen. But if you aren’t that lucky, you could end up losing all your precious data, passwords, and more.
Most of us carry our entire financial lives on our laptops, so keeping that information hidden from unscrupulous eyes is key.
Mini LED Technology for Better Screens
Mini LED panels are starting to trickle into the laptop market in 2021 and onwards. This means that your old LCD screen will not be able to keep up with these new displays that offer superior contrast and deeper blacks.
If you are a gamer and would love a high-quality screen to play on, then these new screens are going to be perfect for you. Even if you are only using your laptop to watch Netflix or video calls with family, a nicer screen can make all the difference in your video quality.
Some laptops like Macs have workarounds that can allow you to use dual screens so you don’t have to switch back and forth between two browsers or applications. But these are still just workarounds.
With dual-screen laptops, you won’t need a desktop and a second screen or some other configuration to become more productive and browse several applications at once. This is especially helpful for gamers and graphic designers or computer programmers. But it can be a boon to anyone who uses laptops regularly for work.
5G Laptops for Browsing While On-the-Go
You’ve heard the big news. 4G or LTE is out or 5G is in. Or at least it is coming soon.
5G networks are still in the making right now and aren’t quite as good as customers would like them to be. But if you would like to future-proof your laptop, then getting one with 5G capability is a good idea. It’s also quite exciting to see such innovative technology coming to the laptop field.
As more and more telecommunication providers start allowing their cellular customers access to 5G, you will want to purchase a laptop that has 5G capability. This will allow you to browse the internet while on-the-go and also increase browsing speed, which means you can do a dozen things at once, without feeling your laptop can’t keep up with you.
Intel Evo laptops are all the rage right now and there’s a very good reason why. If you want a laptop with superior performance with all the latest capabilities without skimping on even a single thing, then you will want to look into laptops with the Intel Evo platform.
These laptops are ultraportable, lightweight, and powerful to boot (with extreme processor speed). The Intel Evo badge isn’t given just to any laptop; you have to earn it! That’s why if you see an Intel Evo label on a laptop while browsing, you know that you are going to get the best quality laptop available on the market.

Did you think yoga was only for human beings and dogs? Well, yoga has entered the digital laptop space as well. Many laptops out there proclaim that their laptops are as foldable as some yogis out there.
If you don’t like the idea of carrying both a tablet and laptop around with you, then a foldable laptop is for you. It will also allow you to browse your laptop in bed, or your couch, by flipping the screen around. No need to fumble around with tables or stands anymore.
Many graphic designers use both a tablet and a laptop to work, but with a foldable laptop, they won’t need both.
In addition, if you are trying to go the minimalist route at home and work, carrying just one foldable laptop is better than carrying all your devices with you in your backpack or purse.
You probably never thought this day would come. But it has!
No need to carry a cumbersome wired cable for your laptop anymore. New wireless charging laptops use “Power by Contact” technology from Energy Square and other such technology to get laptops charging.
Once the wireless chargers are set up, they promise to charge laptops with an efficacy of 93%. This is a boon to all customers who are a bit forgetful and tend to leave their charging cables at home or lying around where the cat or dog can get at it.
Not all laptops have this capability yet. But it’s promising news for all, to know that such technology is in the making and will be a part of all new laptops in the future. Also, as this technology grows, it will mean that wireless charging will become more powerful and more accessible.
With more people working from places other than the office, a laptop with long battery life becomes even more essential. A lot of customers will balk at a laptop without such a feature.
As laptop technology grows faster than ever, the battery life in new laptops is getting longer and longer. Some laptops have a battery life of almost 30 hours!
That means you don’t have to worry about running out of juice while in a long customer call on the train or at the airport, or while at a cafe doing some quick work on the go. No one wants to be interrupted in the middle of their focused work session because their laptop’s battery is dangerously low.
Remote work has been able to grow so rapidly in the past few years and digital nomads are becoming more ubiquitous because of the increasing battery life and portability of laptops.
Tracking Features Built-In
If you are going to be spending thousands of dollars on purchasing a laptop, you will want to make sure that your laptop doesn’t get stolen or lost easily. But if you are the careless kind, or if you don’t want to spend all your free time worrying about your purchase, then consider getting a new laptop with tracking built-in.
Laptops, that use the Tile tracker built-in, are coming up in the market now. This means that you won’t have to purchase a separate Tile tracker to attach to your laptop and worry about setting it up or updating it.
New Innovations in Laptops Are Exciting to Watch Out For
The great thing about living in the 21st century is that new innovations are par for the course for everyone. This doesn’t mean though that everyone doesn’t get excited by all the new capabilities that new laptops have.
It’s an exciting time for a laptop user and owner. You can upgrade your laptop to something high-end and high-quality and with outstanding features, without spending an exorbitant amount of money.
Watch out for all the innovations listed above when purchasing a new laptop so you get the best of this brave new world of laptops.
