It is the month that all the new electronics are presented to the public - or at least the new versions of electronics. Sometimes I think that they call the same system new because it is a different color. But the power of the gadgets today is astonishing.
Not 10 years ago the most powerful desktop had 4 gigs of storage in its hard drive. Today's cell phones have that in their basic memory. Goodness, you can get an SD card with more than 8 times that for short money.
But the title of this blog is "Laptop, Tablet, or PC - Which Is Best For Your Business?" Well to get to the point, the choice is all of them. A laptop helps with some projects and situations, a desktop has other uses, and tablet are becoming more useful and are almost expected by some segments of buyers and sellers.
Your laptop will still provide the most versatile use and maximum capacity for storage, necessary programs, and all around usefulness. It has a large screen. The storage on your laptop will help you file all the property pics, emails, plans, .pdfs, and will even allow you to store downloaded text message chains for future reference and record keeping.
A PC or desktop can be the hub for your home or home office. It will provide the center of shared programs on your network. It can be the hub for printing. And because its components are "faster" and more advanced than those in most reasonably priced laptops, it can still provide an outlet for some gaming when you need time away from the grind.
Then your tablet can prove your techno prowess to possible clients. It is the silent indicator that you are "with it" and up to date with emerging technology. Of course you still need to be able to use it well.
So my thought is you need them all at different times. In nine more years I'll probably be talking my blog (not typing) to my holographic tablet-like item while I ride in my personal delivery device (larger than the Amazon package delivery vehicles of today) on the way to meet approved clients for their first personal viewing - to verify the virtual representation they have already walked through. Who knows?
