Business On The Go? Here’s our Top Tech Recommendations

By Kim Bailey


Technology is not just essential for day-to-day business operations, it can also help companies to achieve real growth and success. No matter what type of industry you operate in, we live in an era where having a strong digital presence is crucial, not just for success, but simply for survival. The more businesses try and shrug off technology or put off investing in the latest devices, the more issues they are likely to face in the future.

Today we’re seeing businesses becoming much more flexible and creative in their processes and setups. Growing businesses understand the key to success is adapting with the times, and ensuring employees have everything they need to complete the job at hand, whether they’re in the office, working from home or on the road.

We’ve compiled our top tech device recommendations for fast-paced, flexible businesses with employees ‘on the go’. Check out our top picks below!


1. Chromebook

Chromebooks are ideally suited to fast paced employees who are always on the go. Chrome OS is famously fast and stable, booting up in seconds, allowing you to access your files quickly when you’re making speedy meeting notes or hitting a last-minute deadline. Stay powered up all day with Chromebook’s extra-long battery life of between 9-11 hours so you can work anywhere without having to recharge.
Chromebooks tend to be smaller, thinner, and lighter than most other laptops due to Chrome OS being predominantly web-based. This makes Chromebooks very compact and easy to transport, so you can carry your laptop with you anywhere.

Arguably, the Chromebook’s main selling point is its super affordable price that won’t blow your budget. Whilst Chromebooks weren’t designed with expansive ability to run programs, they make great laptops for employees on the move who will be mainly browsing the internet, writing, and sharing files over the cloud.

2) VeryPC Thinbook

If you’re looking for even more productivity-boosting power from your laptop, our own VeryPC Thinbook is a great option. With Intel 11th Generation i5 Quad Core processors, the latest SSD storage and up to 32GB RAM, the Thinbook will fulfil all your performance goals and more, meaning your staff can concentrate on producing the best output possible (we’ll handle the rest!).

Connectivity will never be a barrier with the Thinbook as it has dual-band Intel AC wireless, Ethernet, USB 3.0 (type A & C), Bluetooth 5, a card reader and full-sized HDMI port, so whether you’re working on creative projects or catching up on a webinar, your laptop will have everything you need to suit your needs. With long-lasting 49Wh battery, you’ll stay powered up for up to 5 hours per charge, so nothing will stand in your way.

All of these handy features come packaged in a lightweight chassis with minimal lines, with a very reasonable price tag. Experience amazing accessibility with the Thinbook’s 180-degree screen hinge and VA screen panel which allows you to tilt and adjust your screen to fit the position that suits your work setting best. With vertical alignment, you can even fold the screen flat to view from a wide angle and experience the best contrast, image depth and fastest response times, all with the best possible picture with the Thinbook’s matte-anti-glare protection.

3) MacBook

If your business has a more generous budget, MacBooks are the dream laptop, especially for creative professionals. Built for business, MacBook batteries intelligently adapt to your routine to ensure you stay powered up all day. Apple’s ground-breaking M1 chip provides up to 20 hours on the 13-inch MacBook Pro and up to 18 hours on the MacBook Air, so colleagues can be available as much as possible when on the road.

M1’s CPU is astonishingly fast and balances high-performance and efficiency cores simultaneously so you can speed through your tasks with zero wait time, helping you get more done, faster.
Speaking of speed, MacBooks use next-generation Wi-Fi 6 to keep you connected, regardless of how many devices are on the network, providing internet you can rely on.

Not only can you do more with a MacBook, you can store more with up to 2TB of SSD storage, meaning you can keep a library full of documents, 1000 folders worth of meeting notes, albums of photographs and all the music you can imagine on your laptop for when you need them most.

Whether you opt for the MacBook Air or Pro, the opportunities are endless. VeryPC even offers customised-to-order Apple products so you can make sure your tech investment perfectly suits your needs.


4) iPad

Rucksack-light and filled with fantastic features, iPads are great for flexible employees. Research on the go, catch up on required reading, stream videos, edit footage, create music, design artwork, enjoy a gaming break, facetime your colleagues, record meetings and make notes all on one tablet. With access to millions of apps via the App Store, including business favourites like Adobe Photoshop and the Microsoft Office Suite, the iPad really does do it all so you can work your way.

Don’t fancy the idea of using the on-screen keyboard to make notes? No problem! Sync any Bluetooth keyboard up to your iPad to effectively transform it into a laptop and boost your note-taking skills. If you prefer to jot down meeting notes or exploring creative projects by hand then the Apple Pencil could be your new best friend.

New iPad models now come with an A13 Bionic chip, boosting responsivity to new heights so that you can use multiple apps at the same time and split the screen just as you would while working on a laptop. With all of these amazing features as well as all-day battery across the whole iPad range, the world of work will be your oyster!

5) Windows Surface Tablet

Prefer Windows but still want a tablet with the performance power of a laptop? Give the Microsoft Surface range a go. Perfectly portable, with a 10.5” touchscreen, up to 11 hours of battery with fast charging, 1080p HD front and rear-facing cameras, dual studio mics and impressively fast Intel Pentium Gold or Intel Core i3 processor speeds, Surface can help you achieve more and drive results. Let your creative side run wild with the Surface pen and jazz up your brainstorming sessions and meeting notes or create some show-stopping art to illustrate your project in action. With Surface, there are no limitations to what you can achieve.
