The term 'post PC' can be quite daunting if you're happy with the functionality your trusty desktop or laptop station provides. However, their might be a better solution for you. Check out Lenovo's range of tablets for business or pleasure.
The reason the term post PC exists is partly due to high powered tablet devices, from the likes of Lenovo, that not only retain the complete functionality of your laptop or desktop, but also opens a new world of possibilities for you to explore in your home and office lives.
Some of these touchscreen devices from Lenovo bring the full power of the new Windows 8 software which was built from the ground up to embrace the touch revolution, but also maintain a seamless transition into the desktop mode most of us are more familiar with.
Natrually, Windows 8 offers an endless stream of powerful apps, including everything you're used to on your laptop or tower PC. Office, Photoshop, Exchange, you name it. This means you've got the portability, the advantages of touch-enabled tech without sacrificing any important features.
The first great example of this is the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix (opens in new tab) tablet, which is great for commuting or lounging around on the couch. However, with the addition of a simple quick-flip keyboard case it becomes becomes a fully-functioning business machine you can use at your desk. It's got a beautiful 10.1-inch touchscreen and enough battery power to keep you going throughout the day, making it a more portable, flexible option than your laptop.
If you require a tablet that will cover all of your entertainment needs, but will allow you to keep on top of work matters, you may want to check out Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet 2. Again, Windows 8 is on board and it's secure enough to ensure none of your important work data is at risk. It weighs just 565 grams, utilises a 10.1-inch IPS display, while you can also pick up a ThinkPad-quality Bluetooth keyboard and the ThinkPad digitizer pen.

There's also a fully-sized USB port, a rarity on most modern tablets, which makes it the perfect solution if you wish to make use of traditional PC accessories like an external hard drive, printers, cameras, DVD burns and even tethered mice and keyboards.
For your entertainment needs, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 has dual stereo speakers, a Mini HD port for connecting up to the TV and watching the likes of Netflix, BBC iPlayer on the big screen, while there's also an 8-megapixel camera on the rear and a 2-megapixel snapper on the front of the device for beautifully clear video calls.
However, if you're seeking to use your tablet as more of an entertainment device that's still capable of handling some work-related tasks then why not take a look at the 7-inch Lenovo A3000 tablet? It's small enough to fit into a man bag and even some coat pockets, while delivering a great game-playing, movie-viewing, app-enjoying experience at home or on the go.
The A3000 runs the Google-powered Android operating system, which delivers more apps, games, and entertainment content than you could possibly consume in a lifetime.
It makes it easy to leave the laptop lid closed when you want to check Facebook and Twitter, play great games like Temple Run and Angry Birds without touching the console and enjoy Hollywood movies, TV box sets and catch up on the latest Corrie and Eastenders from the comfort of your couch – especially handy if you live with a remote hog!
So there you have it. While the PC still offers the best solution for those who like being tethered to their desks, there are plenty of portable and powerful options for those who wish to work and play on the move or at home in a little more comfort.
