About the Class

Our world and how we interact with it is changing at an incredible
pace. Wireless connectivity is
cheaper and more reliable than ever. The computing power once found in rare supercomputers
is available in phones that weigh less than 5 ounces. Access to files and documents, as well as
people are available anywhere anytime.

And interactions with computers, once relegated to
keyboards and mice, are now seamless and natural with touch, pen, and voice.

For designers, working with, viewing, editing and managing design documents, and content
has never been more important. Being
able to do so away from the office in more natural ways
leads to enormous possibilities for richer projects, more engaged partners, and more satisfied
clients. This class will discuss the many options for computing on the go. See the latest line of
® mobile computing products, including laptops, ultrabooks, convertibles and tablets to
keep you productive in and out of the office.
