Tablet or Laptop?
Nowadays many people who love different devices and want to keep up with time often facing with question: what to choose - the tablet or laptop?
In fact, they are two disparate devices, designed for completely different purposes. So before buying you have to determine: for what exactly will you need a tablet or laptop.
If you take the device to read books, watch movies, graphic files, listen to the music to surf the Internet, the tablet will suit you perfectly. It's fast, well-kept the battery (about ten hours, although this depends on the manufacturer and model), it is lightweight and compact. Due to its small size it is easy to show anything on the presentations from it, also it is perfect to brighten up your long trip. On the road, it will help also by the fact, that it is possible to download in it: guides, dictionaries, maps. The tablet is also a games console. In it you can download a lot of interesting games.
The main advantage of tablets to laptops is a small sizes. But when you are working with websites, this is often a disadvantage - not all the websites are optimized for small screens.
Also a significant tablet's plus - that it's more difficult to damage it, than a laptop. After the fall, usually, you just need to reboot it - imagine what would happen to your laptop, if it has been dropped? Tablet is certainly convenient. However, not always and not in all.
Significant tablet's disadvantage is that many programs can not be run with it. So, for example, it does not allow the editing of audio and video files, photos processing. If you have to do any of this, you have to look for a laptop or desktop computer. Also problematic is typing of the large sizes texts on the tablet - screen keyboard is very uncomfortable for many of us. You can certainly get used to it, but it's long, difficult, and such a desire appears not in everyone. But, fortunately, this problem is solved - now special cases with keyboards are available in addition to the tablets.
Another significant disadvantage of the tablets - is that any of them rarely have a USB-port. This is a big problem to transfer files from another tablet, or any other media. Yet often this is necessary to work.
Laptops, in contrast to the tablets have a lot of different features that are not available on the tablet. They cope with the most difficult tasks. They can be as typewriters, and web designers, and coder, and God knows what else. Tablet, of course, can cope with simple tasks, such as, for example: view documents, create a text file, but they can not do something more complicated. Operating speed and power of laptops are always much higher, than of tablets.
Summarizing, we can say the following: tablet is an intermediary between smartphones and laptops. This is sort of a light-version of a laptop. So the choice of the device will depend on what you expect from it: amusement, status, or serious work.
