Laptop is a portable computer using rechargeable batteries and with an LCD screen, small enough to use on your lap. The main benefit of a laptop to Greenwich Construction is the portability. This can be a huge benefit, allowing you to use it on the move, and practically anywhere else. Along with this benefit comes a large drawback. It is just as easy for someone else to walk off with it as it is for you. Laptops are stolen at an alarming rate, because they are just so easy to steal. And when that computer is stolen, not only do you lose the value of the computer, but also all of your valuable data.
Another major drawback of a laptop is that their parts are “proprietary” which means that if your laptop breaks, only the company that made it will be able to fix it and after the warranty expires they will be very happy to charge you an exorbitant price for that service. Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) is small mobile hand held device that provides computing and information storage retrieval capabilities for personal or business use, often for keeping schedule calendars and address book information handy.
The PDA format is ideal for business meetings – multimedia sales presentation can be taken with you anywhere. It can provide Greenwich Construction sales or marketing staff with PDA’s pre-loaded with professional multimedia presentations. This is an excellent sales tool for travelling executives who require the best presentation technology available in a variety of corporate settings. Also, the interactive format provides employee and employers with choices – the opportunity to self-navigate the selection menu and instantly obtains the information desired.
One of the PDAs major strength is that unlike a Laptop or Tablet PC, a PDA can be easily carried at all times. The drawback of PDA devices is that their screen resolution isn’t sufficiently large so editing large documents, such as spreadsheets, is tiresome. A Blackberry is a handheld wireless device providing e-mail, telephone, text messaging and web browsing and other wireless data access It can be use to Phone, email or text message your clients. With the Blackberry device, Greenwich Construction won’t need to carry a separate mobile phone, laptop, organizer or PDA.
It is your all-in-one wireless solution. Users will be able to receive and send email from customers and employees quickly and easily. Users can easily access contact information with the address book and also set up meetings while at a conference. A Tablet PC is a computer shaped in the form of a notebook or a slate with the capabilities of being written on through the use of digitizing tablet technology or a touch screen. A user can use a stylus and operate the computer without having to have a keyboard or mouse.
The benefit of a Tablet PC is its PC’s compact, convertible design allows users to comfortably use your computer in small spaces-even while standing up. Tablet PCs also include wireless Internet support and a long battery life. Due to its convertible design, you can sit across the table from someone and take notes without having your PC act as a dividing wall. It’s perfect for sales meetings, or any meeting in which you don’t want technology to interfere with the personal dynamic.
