    Any recommendations for laptops for Medicare business? Do you use touch screen to capture signatures?

    I use an Ipad for capturing signatures as well as presenting videos for MAPD plans. Be sure to purchase pens that can be used for signing on computers - they are special pens that have a padded tip and they are not very expensive. The last ones I purchased were three for $8.

    Sounds like you are doing home visits (F2F).

    I generally use a Chromebook. Touchscreen not required when you are 100% phone sales.

    Pants not required either.

    I bring my laptop on appointments but am switching to an Ipad soon.

    My dress code is jeans, sundresses (in summertime) or capris. No shorts, as I don't want to stick to the couch if it's a FE-only home. Never a mu-mu.

    If the couch is soaked with cat piss, you won't have to worry about your legs sticking to the couch. :twitchy:
