Americans Buying ‘Historic’ Amount of Computers During Coronavirus Lockdown

It seems only logical that, with record amounts of people forced to work from home, things like webcams, monitors, laptops and desktops would be selling well. Still not at toilet paper levels though.

According to market researcher NPD Group, U.S. sales of laptops and desktops were up 40%, while keyboard sales were up 64% in the first 3 weeks of March 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. PC headset and monitor sales were also up 134% and 138%, respectively. And of course, webcam sales were up a whopping 179%.
