There are laptops, there are ultrabooks and then there are iPads.
Ultrabooks are the new and smarter versions of laptops - thinner, lighter, just as sturdy and often offering the same system performance as your run-of-the-mill laptop.
They're also just slightly more expensive with an average price tag of about $1,000.
They're great as a business investment, even if you're not always on the go.
New business ultrabooks, including the Dell XPS133 and HP Folio 13, offer the same benefits as space-consuming desktops.
Executives benefit from high-quality webcams, secure software, reliability and portability.
Ultrabooks continue to thrive, with a recent Consumer Electronics Expo showcasing 12 new models that continue to build upon a winning product that merges tablets with laptops - giving users the best of both worlds.
And this is why ultrabooks are a must-have investment for business owners.
The slim line between business and personal life, paired with an increasingly remote work environment, makes it an imperative for business owners to keep abreast with workflow and production through the aid of smart tech tools.
Ultrabook competitors range from netbooks to iPads and MacBook Airs.
Netbooks won't give you the most bang for your buck, simply because of their limited application.
The iPad would be a better choice. It's cheaper and offers the same functionality as a laptop, plus it grants users access to valuable business-savvy apps. iPads are not ideal for an aggressive keyboard user. However, there are many add-on keyboard options available to make up for this.
Which one to choose? Laptops, Ultrabooks and iPads….Oh My!
