Mobile internet for everyone and everything

Networked Laptops

Which Laptops Have a Sim Card Slot?

With our offerings, we are fully committed to mobile communications. Mobile Internet for everyone and everything. To be able to use these offers, however, you need a SIM- or eSIM-enabled device. What has always been standard for smartphones and tablets was a rarity for laptops for a long time. However, a lot has changed since our last article about connected notebooks! The common online retailers have expanded their assortment from a few dozen to several hundred devices. Digitec, for example, currently has over 450 SIM-enabled notebooks listed. So it’s time to introduce you to two current devices.

Acer TravelMate P2 LTE – Sturdy business notebook under 1,000 francs

With the TravelMate P2, Acer delivers an affordable and durable business notebook that covers most applications (apart from gaming) well. With the Intel Core i7-1355U processor and 16 GB DDR4 RAM, all everyday applications run quickly and smoothly. With a 512 GB SSD as main memory, there is plenty of space for files. However, large movie or music collections could quickly fill up the memory.

The build quality of the TravelMate P2 is very solid for its price range. Certified to MIL-STD-810H, the notebook can withstand minor drops, knocks, dust and splashing water. A backlit keyboard, the matte 14-inch display with 16:10 dimensions and a fingerprint sensor round off the experience. An ideal notebook for mobile business cases or anyone who can get by without gaming or high-end video editing.

HP Elitebook 1040 G10 – The 5G Variant

It is pleasing to see that notebooks with a 5G modem are slowly slipping into an affordable price range. With the HP Elitebook 1040 G10, you get a powerful all-round notebook with attractive features. It is equipped with an Intel Core i5-1335U processor and 16 GB DDR5 RAM, allowing you to work smoothly and stream media.

The 14-inch 16:10 IPS display is bright enough for most office settings at 400 nits. In direct sunlight, however, the image may fade somewhat. The matte screen surface counteracts this. The notebook’s security features are also impressive. Face recognition, a fingerprint scanner and a smart card reader make the notebook particularly secure against unauthorized access.

Why Sim-Enabled Notebooks Are the Future

Despite the increasingly broad range of tablets, notebooks remain attractive for mobile work. In particular, work that requires long typing sessions or is computationally intensive is still mostly done using notebooks. Connectivity via mobile communications has been available for these devices since 4G+ and will lead to efficient and fully mobile work with 5G at the latest.

The current mobile communications standards, especially 5G, allow connection speeds that are often on a par with those in the office, and Rates with unlimited data volume enable carefree work at any location. The advantage of this location-independent and individual Internet connection is now causing manufacturers to follow suit and more and more notebooks are becoming LTE or 5G capable.

Most of these devices still use a physical SIM card and 4G LTE, but the first 5G models are also already on the market and will probably soon be joined by other devices, especially with eSIM.

Independent of WLANs and hotspots thanks to cellular – This is true remote working

The advantages for users are obvious: If you connect a notebook directly to the mobile network, you’re always online. Open it up, get started, and you’re done. No more annoying hotspot setup, no more slow insecure public WLAN, everything integrated and on one device. In addition, cellular also provides an individual secured connection for the device, which makes working with sensitive data on the go even more secure. We already discussed these advantages in an earlier article.

We have also already discussed why we think cellular is a promising choice for Internet connectivity at home in another article. The increasing trend of remote working and the growing need for location-independent connectivity make SIM-enabled notebooks products in demand. We think it is only a matter of time before connectivity via mobile communications becomes a standard in this product segment as well.

We already supply the necessary data SIM, graded according to the required speed, including 5G and, of course, as an eSIM!

If you don’t know which Internet speed is right for your notebook, this article will give you the most important recommendations and help you decide.
