Laptops have long been the quintessential device for individuals who work at home and on-the-go, but that trend is starting to change. Tablets can now do almost everything a laptop can with some distinct benefits. Depending on your needs, a tablet may work just as well as a laptop for day-to-day use. Here are some considerations that may help you decide:
Is Lightweight Portability Important?
Unless you’re doing extensive writing or other tasks that require a keyboard and a larger screen, a tablet has most of the power and functionality a laptop provides without the bulk. You can even get a wireless keyboard.
Are You Into the Touchscreen Experience?
Once you get used to touchscreen technology, it can be difficult to go back to the conventional functionality of a laptop. However, some people hate using touchscreens. Touchscreens offer more functionality at the press of a finger, but laptops offer a wider selection of keys and shortcuts because of their conventional style.
The Many Pros and Cons
There are many deciding factors which may influence your preference for a particular style. Spend time on each technology before deciding which one is best for you. The beauty of renting a tablet or laptop is that you can return the product at any time.
