“A PC for every occasion”, that’s what I say. There’s times, especially when you’re on the move from meeting to meeting where a Tablet PC is perfect for scribbling notes, checking your emails at a glance and of course, browsing the web quickly.
But then a notebook really works when you’re out and about, and get a little downtime. Grab a coffee, hit up the Wi-Fi, and you’re set for an hour or two’s work – perfect for productivity.
Working at my desk, however, there’s just something great about a desktop PC – a great wired Ethernet connection, full-sized keyboard and mouse, and best of all? My chair.
So, I like tablets and I like notebooks. But I love desktops too. So when it comes to buying my next PC, how am I going to decide? Gigabyte may well have the answer.
Arriving later this month is the new Booktop T1125 – an 11.6” touchscreen PC that looks remarkably like a notebook, but can flip gracefully into a tablet PC form factor, and comes with a very cool docking station that transforms the Booktop into a Desktop.
It is set to ship with the choice of an Intel Core i3/i5 ULV (ultra-low voltage) processor, NVIDIA’s Optimus graphics technology to maximise battery life and super-fast USB 3.0 for nippy file transfers. Once slotted in the docking station, you can take advantage of an integrated DVD-ROM, or simply sit back and look at the vertical mounting as a work of art.
Netbook News has a video of the Booktop in action, if you want to know more. Now there's no need to pick a favourite form factor, you can have all three!
