Itâ€™s that time of year once again. In this episode of the Full Nerd,Â Gordon Mah Ung,Â Brad Chacos,Â Alaina Yee,Â Adam Patrick Murray, andÂ youâ€”the live Full Nerd audienceâ€”engage in fierce debate (and occasional swooning) to crown the best PC hardware of 2020. And what a year itâ€™s been for PC hardware, even though much of the most impressive new gear remains impossible to acquire.
TheseÂ arenâ€™tÂ PCWorldâ€™s formal picksâ€”theyâ€™re the opinions of the Full Nerd podcast gang alone. We didnâ€™t hold staff-wide meetings or create elaborate Excel spreadsheets full of information about every gizmo we’ve reviewed. Instead, each member of the Full Nerd crew brings a single nominee for each category. Then the group argues, pleads, and deals until we reach a consensus victor. If we canâ€™t determine a winner for a category via majority vote, we ask the live viewing audience to help break the tie. You helped select a champion in not one, but two categories this year.
