Sample Laptop Pro Trends - Each Laptop PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online laptop articles, videos and images. Examples:

Comforting Decor A desire to encourage maturity prompts more soothing methods of independence Implications - With at-home conveniences often preventing youths from engaging in independent activities, encouraging autonomous actions at a younger age allows for an easier transition to a more liberated lifestyle. Seeking to make experiences like sleeping alone more comforting for children, parents are turning to whimsical wall decals that feature references to cartoons and movies, creating a more visually relatable setting. Youthfully engaging decor combines familiar childhood references with the need to make self-sufficiency more appealing.

Rucksack 2.0 Tech-integrated backpacks create connections regardless of worldwide locale Implications - Looking to stay plugged-in while 'off the grid', consumers are opting for backpacks that sustain connections and even create new ones. Using elements like solar energy to stay powered, these packs foster connectivity and further the integration of technology into every aspect of daily activity.

DIY Discount The commodification of the DIY boom leads to brands adopting the ethos Implications - As sites like Pinterest and Etsy comodify the concept of DIY products, brands are responding in kind with custom products and services that give a level of discount by requiring that the consumer become part of the manufacturing process. This augmentation of the custom goods market into something that's attainable for the average consumer transitions tailored goods from luxury to average and lures shoppers who are more inclined to do it themselves. This consumer base -- also avidly involved in the online shopping world -- is accustom to the lower price points associated with e-tail and are far more interested in a partial DIY product over one that's in-line with offline costs.

Conscious Printing A continued dependency on printed documents sparks an eco movement Implications - As the continued push towards more workspaces adopting a paperless ethos and less printer use among consumers, a rise in eco-friendly printing innovations are reintroducing the office practice without the associated waste. The increase in ecological options is helping to satisfy green-minded Millennials with environmental awareness while still respecting more traditional mainstays of office life. These cost-effective solutions also reignite the consumer printing market as many individuals have chosen to ditch the technology in recent years thanks in part to increased smartphone and tablet usage.

Carrier Refinement Haute backpack designs satiate an adult need for sophisticated practicality Implications - With maturity often requiring individuals to let go of their childhood tendencies, adult consumers are often limited in terms of what is or isn't acceptable. As a means to cater to those looking to connect with their youth, retailers are re-inventing childhood accessories such as backpacks to give them a more mature and sophisticated edge. Combining haute designs with everyday practicality, contemporary backpacks allow individuals to connect with their innocence while simultaneously maintaining a mature desire for luxury.

Productive Sleep These workplace bed hybrids cater to adults looking to constantly stay on task Implications - In today's competitive market, achieving success in the workplace often requires a lot of dedication and long hours. Hybrid furniture pieces offer overworked individuals the chance to get in some rest without sacrificing time away from the office. This speaks to the value placed on "hard work" in today's society, re-introducing a worker bee mentality that places dedication to a profession above good rest.
