Tablet PC

Note: The following Specifications and Recommendations made by Office Practicum are based solely on tested and successful implementations. We do not have any partnerships or current affiliations with these hardware vendors. Please consult with your IT Professional to make sure your devices meet our minimum requirements.

Tablet PC

Tablet PCs are a popular consideration among OP customers, but most opt for a desktop PC and use a lightweight laptop for working from home or out of the office. Tablet setup requires the additional expense of a wireless access point, which allows the tablet to communicate with the network.

Hardware Specifications

These are the recommended minimum hardware specifications for acceptable performance. If you intend to use the Tablet device for other tasks than running OP, your hardware requirements may be greater. You should always consult with your practice IT service provider to be sure you are purchasing hardware that will meet your usage and performance needs.
