Which computing form factor best matches your professional persona? That is to say, what\u2019s the ideal device for how and where you work, offering the capabilities you need and the features that keep you productive?\nIn today\u2019s business environment, most of us realize that there\u2019s no easy one-size-fits-all solution. And yet, never have end-users enjoyed such an array of sizes, shapes and functionalities of 2 in 1 solutions from which to choose. What\u2019s more, never have so many 2 in 1 devices been able to share the same platforms and applications, all linked and synched so that users can toggle easily between them. So how do you find the right device for you?\nIn pursuing a successful workplace transformation, some companies are taking a persona-based approach, delivering new user experiences that support how each individual works: better performance, easier mobility or smaller footprint, and extended productivity\u2014all wrapped in secure manageability that frees IT to focus high-level initiatives, not day-to-day maintenance. For greater flexibility, those user experiences are fluid between devices, so that a project that begins as notations on a touchscreen tablet can be developed further via notebook and augmented with a supporting presentation created at the desktop.\nWith so many 2 in 1 form factors to choose from\u2014and with so many overlapping capabilities among them\u2014it can be a challenge to match the right device to each end-user. Nevertheless, here are some general guidelines to help you make informed device choices based on what how and where people work:\nThe User Profile Helps Determine the Right Device\n\n\n\u201cI\u2019m productive in one place\u201d\u2014Not everyone is into mobility. Contrary to what you might have heard, the desktop is alive and well, as a great many professionals perform exclusively in the traditional office environment. For the stationary worker, a traditional PC might be ideal. Or, a smaller form factor with a modest footprint, such as a mini PC, helps minimize clutter, maximize desk space and conserve power consumption. If touch capabilities are important\u2014for routine data entry, say\u2014a desktop all-in-one device makes good sense.\n\n\n\u201cI\u2019m usually working the floor\u201d\u2014Whether in a retail setting, restaurant, or medical center, these workers are constantly on the move and require the ultimate in portability and ease of use. For them, a thin, lightweight tablet with touch capability and specialized software provides the ideal tool for recording transactions, inputting vital stats and other data-capture functions on the fly.\n\n\n\u201cI travel for work constantly\u201d\u2014For every personal preference in mobility, from screen size to ruggedized construction to super-sleek design, there\u2019s a notebook out there to accommodate. Are client presentations a big part of their job? A media-rich notebook with stunning visuals and HD audio is a must. Does the work entail compute-intensive capabilities? A portable workstation might be called for. Intel and PC Connection can help determine the ideal notebook for every user profile.\n\n\n\u201cI need different devices for different things\u201d\u2014Say a user needs to collect data in the field but compile the information in a more detailed report later. Now there\u2019s a 2 in 1 device for those who need the best of both worlds: a highly portable, detachable tablet designed for touch, and a snap-on keyboard for the performance capabilities of a notebook.\n\n\nMatching Persona to Processor Performance\nForm factor is only part of the equation. It\u2019s not \u201cthe right device\u201d until it delivers the optimum compute capabilities. Intel\u2019s selection of processor families enables you to choose the appropriate compute power for each device and work requirement to enhance collaboration, productivity, and innovation at every level.\n\n\nIntel\u00ae Core\u2122 vPro\u2122 i5 and i7 processors offer up to 10% stronger performance over previous generations for compute-intensive applications and best-in-class performance for heavy-duty workloads.\n\n\nIntel\u00ae Core\u2122 M vPro\u2122 processors are engineered for ultra-slim, fanless detachable or premium tablets, providing up to seven hours of productive battery life on a single charge.\n\n\nIntel\u00ae Core\u2122 processors have the optimum performance power to meet your business productivity needs today and tomorrow.\n\n\nIntel\u00ae Atom\u2122 processors deliver energy-efficient performance and extraordinary battery life that is ideally suited to business-ready tablets.\n\n\nQuestions about matching the right device to each user\u2019s work profile?
