Holiday-makers are increasingly taking notebook computers with them as a way to stay in touch, according to a survey by Harris Interactive.
A third of the respondents said that they take a laptop on holiday, and just over half said that they are at least 'somewhat likely' to do so on a future trip.
Some 72 per cent used the devices primarily to check personal email, and 56 per cent to watch movies and listen to music. Around 45 per cent looked up local information for their trip.
And 43 per cent of the holiday-makers could not resist the temptation to stay on top of work email.
The researchers surveyed 2,022 adults in the US. The study was commissioned by Intel.
