If you had the option of choosing only one technological gadget for your personal needs what would you choose? Would you decided on a pc, a laptop, smartphone, ipad or some other cool device?
As for myself I would choose a Laptop. Nowadays laptops are getting more powerful and smaller all the time (not too small of course!). They’re lightweight and you can take them anywhere and they are especially great for mobile businesses. That’s why I like laptops so much because you can take them anywhere. You can even make phone calls with them which eliminates the need for having a mobile phone or landline, your laptop is your phone. My Laptop isn’t just my phone it’s my everything and has tons of features and uses too many to name.
I’ve chosen a laptop and not a PC or other device because you can take a laptop anywhere and a pc is only limited to the top of your desk. Not to mention, a smartphone is just too small to run a business on, even though they do have lots of features you just can’t run a good business on it very well. One of my needs is running a business and a laptop is the best device for doing this particular task.
A laptop allows me to do all that I want to do and that’s why I’ve chosen it as my only gadget. A laptop matches all my wants and needs. So in my book a laptop is #1 but in your book you may prefer some else.
Choosing a gadget for your personal use is not always easy. To help you in figuring out which device you should pick for yourself you’ll need to make a list of what gadgets are out there on the market and what your needs are. If you don’t know what your needs are here are some examples: communication tools, writing tools, business tools, etc… You can make a gadget and needs list with a writing utensil and paper or by just using a computer, either way will work just fine.
To find out what gadgets are available you can do a simple search with a search engine on the Internet. You can use different phrases in a search engine to find out what the best electronic devices are, one example would be: “top electronic gadgets”. Try different phrases till you get what your looking for.
You could also just search a well known gadget store like Apple or Sony. Though you don’t have to go with the big name brands to find a gadget, instead you can check out places like Amazon and Ebay which have all types of brands. Places like Amazon and Ebay have a lot of gadgets in all price ranges, so if your budget is low these websites are a good place to look.
Now that you know how to search for a type of gadget how do you know what your needs are? Well to find out what your needs are you’ll just need to look at what you do in your everyday life. Take notice of what habits you have, what your routine is, what you like to do and what kind of job you have.
After you’ve found out what gadgets are available and what your needs are write or type them all down in two separate columns, one for gadgets and one for your needs. Next find out what features each gadget has and write those out beside each gadget that you have listed. Then match the features with your needs that you have listed in the needs category. Doing this will help you find which gadget matches you the best.
Of course you don’t have to do this, this will just help you narrow down what gadget is a good fit for your life to help you in maximizing your time and skills more efficiently. Otherwise you can just choose whatever gadget you like the most that suits your tastes.
I know most people like to have more than one gadget in their life but if you could have only one, then what gadget would you choose?
