In order to connect technologies to increasing demands of employees and increase their productivity, the industry is talking about digital workplaces and mobility. Additionally, we already can see a shift in labor market.

By the year 2025 75% of workforce will be generation Y (also called the Millennials)

This is the generation which is using the newest technologies, social networks, different cloud services which are available any time and place. People are buying modern devices which are thin and light for their daily usage and are demanding the same experience from their work devices and applications.

On the other hand, we have various business challenges – data security, support for business applications, secure access to business data, technical support, technical reliability and other factors.

Lately we can see an increasing amount of product in the market that try to connect these two worlds, therefore we have chosen two of them, produced by global market leaders – HP Inc. and Lenovo. Both of them have recently released the second generation of their 2-in-1 (detachable tablet PC).

Both products are produced by global business PC vendors, who have proven their product reliability and quality which is even more proven with the MIL-STD 810G testing (rough environment conditions – heat, cold, humidity, dust as well as drop tests). Products are light and the detachable tablet could be a convenient solution for employees who are constantly on-the-go. Additionally, the devices are powerful enough to run standard business applications like any other business notebook.

Both of these products have their own strengths, for example, the Elite x2 has Ultrabook series processors which are more powerful, but the X1 Tablet has additional productivity modules with additional battery life or built-in projector.
