Less than half of UK workers use a desktop PC


Desktop PCs are becoming an increasingly rare sight in UK offices as more and more workers turn to more mobile devices, new research claims.

Only 42 percent of workers now use a desktop in the office, with laptops taking over as the device of choice in the workplace, according to a report from Laptops Direct.

Increased efficiency and productivity were named as the most crucial factors in the decision to ditch desktops, with 84 percent of laptop workers saying they got more work done as a result of having a more flexible device.
