Portable systems

Workers do not always need to be physically present in a workplace, instead they can work remotely, such as when working from home or travelling.

Workers can access the same information as in their workplace using modern mobile communications systems.

Portable computers include:

  • laptops
  • netbooks
  • tablet computers
  • smartphones

Portable computers can do most of the tasks required in business and are often used instead of desktop computers.
