Millgate report rapid growth of sales for 2-in-1 Dell laptops

23rd November 2017

The increasing popularity of 2-in-1 laptops signals a change in working conditions, say experts from Sheffield-based IT firm Millgate.

Millgate has noticed a significant rise in the sales of Dell 2-in-1 laptops with managing director Chris Calvert saying it is because of a new remote working culture which sees businesses move away from the traditional desk and office-base to more flexible environments such as cafes and working on the move. Chris said: -We've noticed a huge increase in our sales with customers choosing to go with 2-in-1 laptops rather than the standard 'boxed' laptop. -Customers have adapted to working in new surroundings outside of the traditional office-based environments, therefore the 2-in-1 laptops have moved with this change. -Being significantly lighter and having a longer battery life than its competitors, gives it qualities ideal for new remote working environments. -The obvious adaptability of 2-in-1s can't be emphasised enough. Whether it's flipping around into presentation mode to turn a quick discussion into an impromptu showcase or going from laptop to tablet mode for quick movie screening, 2-in-1s are at their best in situations that you didn't foresee. There are also financial gains to be had from not buying both a 2-in-1 laptop and a 'boxed' laptop, particularly as the price for 2-in-1s have fallen. There are 2-in-1s available from as low as £150. Key features, which Dell 2-in-1 laptops have to offer, include the hours of runtime per session depending on usage customer can experience up to 15 hours without charging. It also has 'UltraSharp QHD' with 5.7 million pixels. One of the most obvious features 2-in-1 laptops have which standard laptops lack in, is the 'Edge-to-edge Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4' touch screen. Now based at Vantage Drive, Sheffield, Millgate opened its first office in Rotherham in 1996 providing IT and communication solutions for Yorkshire businesses. Today it is one of the top 100 resellers in UK, serving more than 6,000 customers nationwide with a turnover in excess of £40million. For more information contact Millgate for a quote
