Imagine this: You’ve locked down a presentation with the client of your dreams. That one big dog that you always wanted and thought about and worked your butt off toward. 

Now when it comes time to host that meeting, which would you rather show your stuff on: A few throwback science fair-esque poster boards, or an impressively elegant 2-in-1 laptop with vibrant colors, lifelike visuals, and studio-quality sound. 

It’s a no-brainer, right? 

This example is just one way in which tech can set you and your business apart. It may not be presentations and pitches, but the ability to design pieces for your customers, email with vendors, draft content for marketing, and even track inventory is made all the easier and better when you have the right tech products. 

That’s why I pulled together five tech picks to help give you an extra edge. 


Dell XPS 13 2 in 1

Dell calls this model a “Vision of Perfection” and it’s hard to disagree. 

It’s stunning HDR 400 certified display enables over 16 million colors that have more depth and dimension than ever before. Plus, an optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840 x 2400) display delivers precise detail and sharp images.

It’s my top choice for writers or other content creators who spend long hours staring at a screen too, since it also features Dell Eyesafe®, which selectively reduces harmful blue light and disperses it across the light spectrum. 


Dell Latitude 13 7000 series

I like options. So I like the ability to choose a unique finish for my laptop. Which is why I included the Latitude 13 7000 series from Dell. 

You can bring this beauty home in stunning machined aluminum, carbon fiber or magnesium alloy.

It’s a pretty straightforward model that is also one of the most safe if you do a lot of remote work. In fact, Dell’s Latitude line has the most secure laptops and 2-in-1’s in the world with a wide variety of biometric readers and encrypted hard drives. 


Dell Inspiron 7590 2 in 1

Crazy convenience alert! Thanks to the first-ever innovative hinge design, its full-size Dell Active Pen to be stored securely and accessed easily in any mode, even when the laptop is closed. 

That Active Pen also allows you to sketch, take notes, and write clearly. 

This pick is one that is sure to impress family members as well as any future clients. 



Dell Advanced 4K Laser Projector: S718QL

Sure, you may be thinking, “Why would I need a projector when I can just show my stuff on my laptop screen?” 

Because this isn’t just an ordinary projector, my friend. 

You can place this as close as four inches from the wall to enjoy it’s crazy amazing 4K Ultra HD display capabilities. It’s also easy to use, with minimal installation work and no special cabling required.



Dell OptiPlex 27 7000

If you have a more permanent workspace, this pick is for you. 

The brilliant edge-to-edge 27" with up to a 4K display makes it easy to present, share and display more onscreen information to reduce scrolling and improve productivity. It also boasts an optional multi-touch point screen so you can interact with your work. 

My favorite aspects though have to be the state-of-the-art noise reduction using Waves MaxxAudio Pro and quad mic array and premium integrated speakers. It’s all perfect for hopping on a video conference or webinar, or even just jamming some of your favorite workday tunes.  


So there you have it! My top five tech picks to help set you and your business apart. I hope you found something that you can score and start utilizing right now.
