Nowadays companies are more apt to offer new hires the benefit of a virtually commuting. But there are still plenty of jobs which require workers to hit the road (or airlines), thus also bringing up the need to be properly equipped for mobile workflow. Here are several solutions for those of us who need to work here, there and everywhere...

Dell Latitude E6320
A powerful mobile station packing 2.6 GHz i5 processor and 320 GB drive, the Dell's 13.3" screen is not too big, not too small, and weighs a travel friendly 3.7 lbs. The Latitude comes with a built-in broadband communication module (fancy word for wi-fi) and also useful travel security features like data encryption and fingerprint recognition so you have to worry less about anyone compromising your Facebook page spreadsheets.

Inergie mCube Mini
You can slip the mCbube Mini's 2.4 oz adapter into your carry on and practically forget it's there. The petite device allows users to take advantage of the growing number of flights with in-seat power outlets, and comes with 10 adaptors capable of charging almost any device you may have (as long as it's not a Macbook!).

Hitachi LifeStudio Mobile Plus
The ample portable 500GB drive is a capable storage device for on-the-go use. The detachable 4GB flash drive is super convenient for those quick transfers of data (but every time we see it, "Quaid" from Total Recall comes to mind!). It also includes 3GB of cloud storage, so you've got options galore of where and how you store your files.

Case Logic Hydrus
Great cushy compartments for a tablet, phone and 16" laptop…there are a dozen of other pockets and dividers for everything else you may need. The rugged nylon holds its shape and doesn't end looking like a black blob of nylon and fabric. The large zippers makes opening and closing a breeze while being secure, a solid choice for the traveler who needs to get to everything quickly and easily.
