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.

Spotify? Yes really.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't hit my work stride unless I have the proper tunes in my iPhone-white earbuds. Recently, my day job handed me a shiny new Macbook Air for work purposes -- but all my music was trapped on my home computer. Rather than go through the headache of transferring my many gigabytes of music, I installed Spotify and was rockin' Wu-Tang's "W" in seconds. Even with the free version, I can write the night away to albums I haven't actually bought (yet). But a word of warning to all you CPAs: Since Spotify is outside the Apple ecosystem, you won't be able to rock out to The Beatles' "Taxman" come April 15th.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
