Remote work for some is an opportunity to pursue their dream profession away from the headquarters of the company in which they want to develop a career, for others the necessity of compulsory staying at home for two weeks (or longer). In both cases, some tools will be needed to perform the tasks without stress.
Stay at home, but don't give up work
We were encouraged to work from home due to exceptional circumstances and it is not entirely clear how long this situation will last. One thing is certain: without the right tools, remote work is not possible, so you should be well prepared for it. Because of their mobility, laptops are the basic and often necessary device to perform many tasks from home. The right model should have: a good display, processor and memory, as well as weight, size and additional functions. The light and handy notebook will work if you change places often and take the device with you. A heavier laptop with more features and additions is still a device that is easier to move than a standard PC, but its mobility is estimated to be slightly smaller than a notebook.
Not only the capacity and also number of cores...
The processor and the appropriate disk will ensure smooth operation of all necessary computer functions. In the case of work from home, there may be a bit more, because in addition to standard work tools, we also use e.g. messengers and teleconferences. The quality of our internet connection also affects the efficiency of their operation - let's not forget about this important issue.
The quality of the processor, i.e. the heart of our device for remote work, is often convinced that most of us have found out more than once, because it is responsible for the computing power of the device. The more tasks we give our model, the more advanced the processor will be needed to work. It is recognized that for office work from the Intel Core family, the absolute minimum is an Intel Core i3 processor or higher (if the budget allows us). Its high class also allows you to reduce energy consumption while performing many tasks at the same time - a priceless feature, if sometimes we need to work e.g. in the field or temporarily without a power source.
Without a proper disk, our work will also not run smoothly. A disk with adequate capacity is the basis, but it is not the most important thing if, for example, we work with typical office documents - they do not take up much space. Here, the technology and speed of data writing and reading are also important. SSD hard drives are able to speed up the system boot and improve the computer's performance compared to HDD.
Are the kids crazy? Headphones could mute outside sounds
One of the common problems that people who usually work in the office face, but sometimes they also have to work from home, is noise. Sometimes they are cars passing through the window, sometimes a loud neighbor, and sometimes their own children, who just at the time in which we want to focus, decide to play in a loud way. The godsend for people who want to complete an important task or project are headphones with the option of muting sounds from outside. Such headphones are also liked by music lovers who value the perfect quality of music that is not disturbed, or a movie with interesting sound effects.
Comfort of remote work - these devices will help you
Teleconferencing allows you to hold remote meetings. Everyone who is involved in trade, media or just wants to talk to someone in the family who is stuck in a distant city or country, appreciates the opportunity to hear and see her/his husband, mother or child. Every day, we do not notice how many devices give us this opportunity. Often, it is only the necessity that prompts us to use similar gadgets. Of course, the standard tool for remote meetings is a laptop, but also a good notebook, tablet (we can connect a comfortable keyboard to many of them) and a modern smartphone.
And how does your home office look visually? A secondary but noteworthy issue is the appearance of the environment in which we work. Modern design of computers, notebooks and all kinds of computer accessories will make our work more enjoyable. Many of them are not only effective designs, but also ergonomics - pay attention to handy mice or comfortable, solid keyboards. Sometimes we treat them as gadgets for players, but we will certainly appreciate them when, instead of watching the Netflix series at home, we will work for hours.
And after work, it's time for entertainment
Many modern, solid laptops can combine the functions of writing models, applications useful at work or processing photos and videos, but also for entertainment - mainly games. To pass the time in the afternoons or evenings we spend at home, it is worth catching up and being tempted by one of the titles of games we are interested in, for which we have not had time yet. An ideal option for a free afternoon, especially if you complement the set with headphones or speakers, which will make the usual gameplay a great adventure with realistic sound.
