Portable computing technology appeared first in 1975, gradually evolving through the 80’s and 90’s into the laptop computer as we know it today. The portability of laptops make them a versatile tool in the corporate world. With a laptop, it is possible to work from nearly any location – in the office, at home, at a client’s location, in a meeting, or while traveling. This versatility increases productivity by making it possible to continue work where it would otherwise be difficult.
Laptops come in a variety of sizes and capabilities, from small lightweight netbooks, to powerful sleek ultrabooks, to intuitive touchscreen tablets. Often times, laptops are accompanied by portable peripheral devices to extend the capability of the laptop. In a business setting, laptops can be paired with docking stations equipped with multiple ports and expansion slots to increase the laptop’s functionality. More importantly, such docking stations make it easy for an employee to quickly connect to their company’s infrastructure. With the variety of laptop types and accessories, companies are able to choose the laptop with the right specifications for the task at hand for the right price.
Technology manufacturers are perpetually pushing the boundaries of what laptops are able to do. Advances in storage space, component miniaturization, efficient cooling, and battery life enable laptop manufactures to continue to increase the speed and performance of laptop technology, while minimizing weight and power consumption. Because of these continual advances, many companies find they routinely need to replace their old company laptops with newer, more current equipment.
