Two-thirds of Americans working from home would trash their faulty work computers out of frustration

Oh, technology! Most remote workers are so fed up with their faulty work laptops that they would rather throw them out the window. A survey of 2,000 employed Americans found more than half (58%) describe their work devices as awful to work on — and two in three want to toss their devices out of frustration because of their poor performance. While nearly three in five employers (58%) issue company laptops to employees, 62% of those employees said their devices prevent them from maximizing their productivity. Commissioned by LG Electronics and conducted by OnePoll, the study revealed 47% of employees believe having high-quality tech is the key to having a productive workspace. Seventy-one percent said they would enjoy their jobs more if their tech devices were of higher quality. Meanwhile, 59% noted that they're most productive when working in a comfortable environment — and at the center of their comfy workspace is their desk.
