Are you planning to buy a laptop or hesitating in the device you should chose? Do you feel confused with the many recent hardware releases? In this show, James and Drea give you an overview of what’s new on the market and let us know their favorite devices at work.
All the hardware outlined in this show fully embrace the cloud philosophy. They are laptops or portable devices that just require an internet connection so you’re ready to go. All your documents get automatically stored in the Cloud and accessible from any other device. An advantage is that you don’t need to worry about losing crucial information if you lose or damage your laptop!
James and Drea start the show with an overview of Chrome’s latest gadget : the Chromebit. Simply put, it consists of a hardware in a stick! About the size of a USB flash drive, it is easy to carry anywhere : the only thing you will need is a monitor with an HDMI input, a keyboard and a mouse! As soon as you sign into Google, you will automatically find your bookmarks and files on Drive! It is also very easy to do digital signage with the Chromebit, using the Chrome Sign Builder app. James walk us through the process of downloading the app and setting it up from the app launcher.
In the second half of the show our hosts present the latest Chromebooks on the market and explain how they fit to their business priorities. For instance, if you are frequently working in the field or traveling, you may want to choose a laptop with a powerful battery life, like the Chromebook 13. If you look for the feel of a laptop with a touchscreen, the ASUS Flip is a good option as it can be converted into a laptop! Finally if you are looking for a high-end option, that mixes power, sleek design and great screen resolution, you won’t be disappointed by the Pixel, which is also Drea’s choice at work!
