Do you have the right computer for your home office? There are a few key differences between a laptop and a thin client: understanding how they differ will help you choose the right one for your needs.
Are you sure you have the right technology for your home office?
With how much you’re likely working from home these days, this is an important question to answer. It’s no longer just a matter of bringing your work home every now and then, or checking your work email on your phone as needed. A lot of work is getting done from home, and if you’re going to do it properly, that means making sure you have the right computer for your needs.
The core debate here is between laptops and thin clients. Laptops, as you likely know, are small, portable personal computers. They’re convenient but limited. A “thin client” is a simple desktop computer that is designed to compute and access resources via a remote connection with a server-based computing environment. It essentially outsources all the hard work to infrastructure that’s stored elsewhere.
From where we stand, the choice is clear. Thin clients are simply more flexible, cost-effective, and easily managed.
