It’s easy to spot someone that is traveling on business at an airport. Not only are they dressed formally–suit and tie–but you can spot them by how glued to their mobile phones they are. Either they are punching away on the key incessantly, or they are chatting loudly enough so that everyone nearby becomes an expert on the third quarter’s inventory figures.
While those devices are a must have for any business traveler they cannot replace the need for a laptop, the ultimate traveling device. Most times business travelers will need more power and capability than a mobile phone can afford. But finding the right laptop can be difficult and is a balance of a variety of characteristics that range from speed to battery life.
For those traveling on business that value speed and power, they can’t go wrong with the Asus P30A and the Lenovo ThinkPad, both of which boast the latest Intel processors with blazing speed. With such power, business people on the go can utilize all kinds of multimedia from video to web. Each, however, are a little hefty in weight which may turn off some users.
Some business people that are constantly hitting the road aren’t too concerned with performance. What those road warriors are most interested in is something that will last. That is, something that will take the occasional drop and moisture that comes from traveling. For those travelers, they should buy a Sony Vaio Z laptop that is constructed with carbon-fiber and aluminum to deflect any sharp objects. They also come with shock sensors that protect the hard disk from any unexpected movements.
But what good is a laptop that only provides a couple hours of use, especially to those traveling in far flung places without an electrical outlet in sight? The answer is the Acer Apire Timeline that houses lithium-ion battery technology and can stay charged for up to 9 hours at a time.
