Compared with the first laptop I owned, which was new back in 2000, my Motorola Atrix 4G has twice the processor speed, twice the amount of RAM, and more storage space.
At the rate that advances in mobile devices are moving, maybe it's time to replace your aging laptop with something that isn't a laptop at all. Smartphones with laptop docks, and tablets with keyboard docks, provide much of the same functionality with less weight, more battery life, and more flexibility than many laptops offer. And although most of these devices don't run full-featured desktop office productivity suites, you have plenty of lightweight options for managing word processing documents, spreadsheets, and more--and even ways to control your work computer via VNC. Many of these devices aren’t meant to replace your PC completely, but they can replace a laptop when you’re traveling. Check out these laptop alternatives to see if you could work on the go with one.
