INFOGRAPHIC Holiday Travel Habits and Tech (for work or personal use)

Because of this, more people need to travel with devices and it can lead to stress. Laptops can be big and heavy, battery life may not be long enough for flights, you have to remember all the different chargers and cords for your different devices. Even if we want to unplug for the majority of the time we are off work for the holidays it is most likely that we are less stressed if we are able to check in on email (to keep it in check) and other things while we are traveling.

For me, the Surface Pro 3 tablet takes care of all of my needs for personal and business use when I travel. It has a large enough screen to see, fits nicely on tray tables on planes and trains, outstanding battery life, and runs all of my needed Office programs. Because it is a tablet you also do not have to take it out of your bag when going thru security at the airport.

This week’s infographic is about travel habits and tech for the holiday season. My friends at Microsoft Surface (I’m a Microsoft Blogger and receive certain perks as such, opinions are my own) sent this infographic to me and I thought it was perfect for this week with many of you thinking about tech and travel.

Are you traveling during the holiday season? What are your must-have tech devices to take with you on your travels?

We will be flying up north to visit my parents & sister’s family for a week. We bring our phones and tablets, of course; and now we have a Kindle (paperwhite) to share, so we’ll bring that too.

I have an IPad1 and love it- I really cant imagine not going places without it. Heck it has been in hospitals and Dr offices etc. No travelling for me- I am staying home this year. I would LOVE to try out a Surface Pro 3 they look nice!

I think it’s interesting that the highest rated thing that people dislike was all the chargers they need. We are staying home for Christmas. Thank goodness!

I’m surprised so many people still travel with books (but love it!). I’m one of those people who take both the laptop and tablet on most trips. The laptop is so much easier for going through pictures and blogging in the hotel room, and the tablet is better for taking with me during the day and for GPS directions in the car.

My biggest complaint isn’t remembering all of the chargers, but keeping them organized on the trip so I have the right ones with me at all times.
