"What's the WiFi password?" It's a question we've been accustomed to ask any time we sit down to work at a coffee shop or check email at a friend's place. But in this challenging year, reliable connectivity has become an even more integral lifeline to the world beyond our walls. A new generation of powerful laptops with 4G and 5G connectivity combines the convenience of a smartphone with the reliable performance of a mobile computer. Always On, Always Connected PCs (ACPCs) powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ compute platforms are letting us reimagine everyday life as we continue to work from home, the dog park, or virtually anywhere we go these days.*

At the core of this mobile computing revolution is the powerful Snapdragon compute platform, which is designed to seamlessly toggles between trusted Wi-Fi and cellular networks depending on location. The result is a laptop that connects in more places and does not require unsecured, public Wi-Fi.

Popular laptop models come equipped with the Snapdragon compute platform’s premium capabilities. Qualcomm Technologies describes those capabilities as “superior graphics performance, multi day battery life from a single charge, and lightning-fast connectivity.”* They are also thin, lightweight, and sleek. The powerful and efficient CPU means a silent, fan-less laptop. That helps fit unpredictable or on-the-go workflows and lifestyles. As CNET put it, “there’s nothing like lifting your laptop lid and just being connected.”

For San Francisco-based animator and illustrator Vrinda Zaveri, an ACPC provides the kind of flexibility and freedom that she’s always wanted. Leaving the house to go on a walk or driving out of the city to go on a hike no longer impedes her work, but rather, enables her to stay grounded and creative, without missing important updates throughout the day. As she explains: “One of the things that has been super helpful for me both as an illustrator on a project, or a lead on a project… is the ability to mock something up quickly. Increased connectivity allows me to support my team. They don’t have to wait for me to go home and do something 10 hours later.”

Zaveri, like many, wants to strike the right balance between work and family. She relies on fast and continuous connectivity in order to stay in touch with her family - though not only within a pandemic. An ACPC’s high quality video and audio capabilities enables her to have authentic daily video chats with her parents back home in India, letting the device do exactly what it’s meant to do: seamlessly blend into her life.

As with other increasingly mobile technologies, the Snapdragon compute platforms’ advantages are clear: with truly mobile 5G laptop computers we know our computer is working for us at all times.
