Home tech to free you up

14 December 2020

Working from home has become a big part of so many lives and with new tech you can choose a solution that keeps you mobile.

Having a home office is something that many people are used to, but so many have had to jump into this way of working and fit it around their home life. A traditional desktop computer may work well for some but others may need to be more flexible.

A great solution is a hybrid mix of tablet and keyboard. This gives you the mobility of a laptop, a familiar keyboard to make your work easier and then the option to pop it in your bag if you need a day in the 'real' office. Another benefit now that screens are so good is that you will end up with a 'laptop' that has a touch screen that can be used with a pen for many more options.

After work has finished you also have a great device to watch a film or play a game on and you can just pick it up, remove the keyboard and relax! The iPad with keyboard is maybe the best known of these but there are others and this is sure to be a massive trend it the future. We have selected a few for you here.
