I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s very hard to use a laptop while you’re standing up. Tablet PCs slates on the other hand, are designed to be used when your standing up.
Think about the possibilities for this… For instance, a cold storage company recently told us that a Tablet PC will save them hours every day. How?
Well, each time they have a question in the cold store, they have to walk out of the store, into the office, look it up on the computer and then walk back again. It was a massive warehouse. Can you imagine how much time that takes up every day?
With a Tablet PC (in this case, the semi-rugged Motion F5) they can have the PC on hand, and look up the information while they are standing at the pallet.
Here is a list of just some of the places that you’ll see Tablet PCs where a laptop is not practical:
- In a warehouse
- On a building site
- On a farm
- At a hospital bedside
- On the street
- In meetings
- In hallways
By the way, a Tablet PC is easier to use on you lap when you’re sitting down too, since there’s no need to balance the keyboard and screen.
