In Pictures: 10 great work tools we can't live without

The promise of consumerisation is workers choosing their own tools to get the job done. Here are our favorites.

SkyDrive

I spend a lot of time on the road. That means I may be away from my backups, and from years’ worth of notes and files, for a month at a time. Cloud services keep data synchronized across phones, tablets, and PCs – and I’ve tried them all, finally settling on SkyDrive as my cross-platform sync service with as it’s built into Office 2013 and available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Now I can pick up a new device, install a SkyDrive client, and have my working documents ready to go in minutes, wherever I may be.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
