According to research by Microsoft, 75 percent of the people who were polled plan to take their laptop with them, versus 70 percent for their smartphone. The number one thing people do on their laptop while on vacation is share their adventures on social networking sites. Other top features include gathering information, getting directions, and playing games and movies.
Speaking of movies, Microsoft’s study claims that 57 percent of the people who were polled admit to looking at the screen of another person’s laptop while they are on a plane. The biggest reason for doing so is seeing what movie or TV show that person might be watching.
