Zero Point is a discussion on the prospective look at what home ownerships of computers might become. Using the experiences of students and professionals during COVID as a case study, it was determined that most computer and laptop purchases underserved their owners either in an ergonomic capacity, cost-to-performance capacity, or simply in overall performance. Cheap laptops often fail to run necessary software, computers consume space and are not portable, and many users bought additional peripherals to compensate for lacking aspects of either resulting in excessive clutter and cost.
