Next Notebooks Remain Best Business Productivity Choice, for Now-2 Next

Like most of us, the one thing that Paul absolutely must have when working on an extended assignment is the full-sized keyboard on his notebook. Sure, the touch keyboard of the iPad is exceptionally well-designed, and the keyboard of a BlackBerry smartphone offers a tacit response that is second-to-none. For a touch typist, anything other than a full-sized, tacit keyboard can feel extremely limiting, and cause the user to tire quickly.

Of course, it is entirely possible to bring along Bluetooth keyboards such as the excellent Apple Wireless Keyboard to work with your tablet of choice, or the slightly smaller and even more portable ZAGGkeys Flex. Because they are not integrated devices however, some amount of effort is necessary to properly set up and position them prior to using them each time. In comparison, working on a notebook involves flipping up the lid and then waiting a couple of seconds for it to resume from sleep mode.

Looking to ditch your notebook in favor of a tablet or even a smartphone? The late Steve Jobs famously spoke of a "post-PC" era when unveiling the iPad 2 early last year. Yet in spite of the tablets and smartphones that many of us own, reaching for our notebook is probably still a regular occurrence for most of us.

Paul Mah wonders if perhaps the transition is meant to be a long and trying one for him, as he’s never found it possible to do much work on a tablet without a certain amount of advance planning and preparation. For now, he’s identified five reasons why notebooks are simply a better productivity choice for small and mid-sized businesses.
