Tablets are the in thing these days. No matter if you have an Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy or one of the other million different devices that are out there! More and more people are buying a tablet instead of a laptop these days and I actually think this is a smart decision. Sure in a perfect world you would have both, but unless you need to type a ton of stuff up I honestly think a tablet is the way to go. And here are a few of my reasons as for why you should pick a tablet over a laptop.
Ok so if you have something like a MacBook Air or a Ultrabook the difference may not be huge. But for the most part a tablet is far smaller, lighter and much more convenient to carry around. Even if you never take it out of your house, it’s far less hassle to take your tablet from one room to another. And if you were to go out of town packing a laptop is more “work” than just finding a place to slot in your tablet.
Much Better Battery Life
Tablets for the most part has a far better battery life than a laptop. My laptop for example was a pretty decent laptop, but if I were to take it from my office into the living room I would get either a couple hours battery life out of it or I would have to unplug the charger and take that in with me. A tablet however you get far better battery life.
Ease Of Use
While I do not think a laptop is something that is hard to use for a person who has never really used computers much in their lives it can be pretty daunting to be sat down in front of a laptop. But with a tablet where all you do is tap and swipe it’s something that the very young or the very inexperienced can easily pick up and get to grips with.
No matter what pops into your head, chances are there is some kind of app relating to that. It’s just crazy and while you can jump on your internet and go to a website on your laptop. There is just something so much cooler and fun, downloading and using an app about the things that you are into. It’s staggering just how many apps are out there for both Android and Apple devices.
Half Phone, Half Computer
One of the best things for me about a tablet is that they walk the line between a laptop and a smartphone. While if you are doing a ton of work on say Microsoft Word, a laptop may be for you, although you do get tablets that do have a keyboard these days. But the fact that a tablet has the best of both worlds when it comes to smartphones and laptops is really cool.
It Serves As A 2nd TV
This is really cool. A tablet can have services such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer or whatever there is in your region. Yes you can get these on your laptop, but the fact that you can take your tablet into any room in the house without any hassle at all it makes it perfect.
