Is a Two-in-One Device the Right Mobile Computing Tool For You?

It’s easy to see why two-in-one devices are a popular choice for mobile workers in rugged environments, as these devices have all the benefits of a traditional computer or tablet but with the added bonus of a flexible form factor, rugged, fully mobile, and lightweight.

With such a plethora of mobile computing options these days, you might wonder why a “two-in-one” device is even needed. With the option of a laptop or a tablet, why not just pick one or the other? Well, for those who work in rugged or hostile environments day in and day out, there are special workplace needs that might not be completely met solely by a laptop or solely by a tablet. With the two-in-one mobile computing model, you don’t have to pick one, you can have both! This unique environment is where two-in-one devices fit in. Two-in-one devices are a hybrid of a laptop and a tablet, for those who need the computing power of a laptop yet the light weight and flexibility of a tablet. Here are a few of the main benefits of these versatile devices:

Lightweight

Often weighing in at only a few pounds, these devices allow you to complete the job without carrying around a heavy computer all day. For those with mobile jobs that require substantial travel by foot, or call for access to computing when away from a vehicle or computer stand, the ability to hold a device in one hand without straining your muscles is a huge energy-saver. Two-in-one devices like the new Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Q2 tip the scales at only a few pounds, so you don’t have to hit the gym to carry it around.

Rugged

Rugged two-in-one devices are purpose-built with flexibility and a long lifespan in mind. Manufacturers understand the need for hardy devices that can withstand substantial abuse throughout its working life, so there are many options for two-in-one devices that meet rugged certifications such as IP65, and MIl-STD-810G. All the devices mentioned here and many others we offer are fully rugged – meaning they are tested to military and industrial standards for ruggedness. This means you don’t have to worry about travel, the elements, or just tough working conditions taking the life out of your device. For mobile workers in rugged environments who need electronic access on a daily basis, this kind of reliability in harsh conditions is not optional, but necessary.

Mobile

For those workers traveling long distances in rugged environments, or spend most of their day inside of a vehicle, the ability to easily pack and transport electronic devices is extremely important. Many two-in-one devices retain all the mobility of a tablet, coming in astonishingly compact sizes. One example is the Getac V110, with a thickness of barely 1.3 inches. Devices like these are easily slipped into a pack or briefcase, while retaining all the computing power of a traditional laptop. And don’t worry about tossing it around – the Getac V110 and many other thin two-in-one devices are still fully rugged.

Flexible

The beauty of two-in-ones is that they can function as both a laptop and a tablet — many have unique features that highlight this benefit. Detachable screens and keyboards are one of those features, found in the Panasonic Toughbook 20. This notebook is lightweight and very versatile, allowing you to attach and detach the keyboard with only one hand. With a 10-point multi-touch display, there is no loss in interactivity by removing the keyboard and using only the touch display. Detachable notebooks are an excellent choice for mobile computing, allowing workers to access a lightweight touch screen while on the go, all the while, still having access to a full keyboard when needed.

It’s easy to see why two-in-one devices are a popular choice for mobile workers in rugged environments, as these devices have all the benefits of a traditional computer or tablet but with the added bonus of a flexible form factor, rugged, fully mobile, and lightweight.
