Most of the people I know who are using tablets in their business are using iPads - and some with Android devices.

Haven't seen much of the Windows based systems at all.

A couple of guys I work with were issued Lenovo Yoga systems and are happy

Lenovo has a USB dock that supports wired ethernet and dual monitors, or
you can get a USB ethernet adapter, bluetooth keyboard/mouse, and an HDMI
monitor.

They are unfortunately. Worse yet, much of the IBM suite of software for

The best news for IBM i users is Mocha works very well and most of

is web based. With the recent job actions in IBM it will be interesting
to
find out from Tim Rowe at the WMCPA conference next week when/if the work
to
migrate away from the client based application to the web based one is
continuing, stalled, or stopped.

Seriously? I didn't think anyone was buying those things.

I hate to admit it but it looks like the best one I've looked at.
They do have to buy a cover/keyboard and a couple of other accessories.

I'd be interested in the other replies.

Subject: [PCTECH] Good tablet for business

All,

A couple of managers are getting their desktop PCs replaced. Both are
interested in tablets so they can take it with them if they so desire.
However, 90% of the usage will be at work with a docking station. The
only tablet experience I have is Android.

Need:

Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit
Docking station
USB 3.0 and 2.0
Wireless and wired

Battery life, though important, is not critical.

What are some of the good ones out there?

Thanks.
