6 Reasons To Own A Tablet Over A Laptop
Technology is not static, it keeps changing. With this in mind, it can prove to be a bit difficult to keep up with emerging trends, case in point, the Tablet. Here’s why it pays to have a Tablet, in comparison to a laptop.
Light Weight Mobility
You feel the obvious weight of a laptop once you lodge it on your back, or over your shoulder. Tablets on the other hand are feather light. Designed to fit into any space, they are easily malleable, and can fit into any bag. No need for a specialised carrier bag, as is the case with laptop bags, laptop sleeves etcetera.
The versatile function of the tablet is such that one can do so much on a single device. Ranging from: taking pictures, to shooting video, taking important meeting notes, handling presentations, name it, a tablet will do it. The possibilities are literally endless. Additionally, it can also be used as an e-reader, allowing you to read and access an entire library remotely.
They come in a wide variety, meaning that there’s a product for every budget. Tablets are also relatively easy to support as they are less likely to be hit with bug attacks, worms, Trojans, and other malware.
Laptops have larger screens on average, and thus need less density to achieve a sharp display. But even after factoring in typical screen sizes (about nine inches for a tablet, 13 for a laptop), the tablet still wins handily. Unless you buy a pricey MacBook Pro with Retina Display, tablets simply sport better screens than their laptop rivals.
All we have to measure this at the moment is dealer-reported battery life. This might be slightly unreliable, given the propensity of manufacturers’ measuring methods to vary. But in general, the average laptop lasts about 6hours before going low on charge. In comparison, the average reported battery life for these is between 9-10hrs. So perhaps this what, in our opinion at least, makes tablets more reliable than laptops.
The gap seems slight, but imagine the possibilities that lie hidden in some 3-4 hours of extra battery life!
Have you ever tried to get work done on a laptop while riding in a taxi, or during a flight? It’s not fun. It is a project to lug the device out, and then you have to find some relatively flat, stable surface to set it on. It has to be flipped open to view the display or type on the keyboard, so that rules out any use while walking around (at least for anyone with common sense). A tablet is easy to just turn on and use in any environment.
With that said however, the tablet may not/never replace the laptop, but it sure makes work much easier.
