Question of the Week
Posted October 11, 2017, 12:02 pm CDT
As lawyers are increasingly expected to be able to handle work outside of normal business hours and from anywhere, the desktop computer’s usefulness seems to be on the decline.
Still, according to the 2017 Legaltech News Law Firm Tech Survey, 45 percent of firms plan to provide desktop computers to lawyers in their next hardware refresh—a larger percentage over last year’s survey Law.com reports. Why? It can be easier to keep client data secure, laptop maintenance requires more administrative time and energy, and there’s obviously a far greater chance of a laptop being lost or stolen.
So this week, we’d like to ask you: Is your primary work computer a desktop or a laptop? Was this your choice or one made for you? What’s the reasoning behind this choice?
Answer in the comments.

Posted by Been There: “Also, one of the best pieces of advice I ever received: If, in a given week of law practice, you do not say at least once ‘Hey, this is fun!’ you are doing it wrong.”
