If you are fascinated by technology, which many people are, you may be intrigued with tablet PCs. However, you may wonder why you would ever need one. Most people have laptops because they are on par with most desktop computers on the market. In addition, who doesn’t carry a smartphone with them everywhere they go?
Why You Need a Tablet
Even though you do have a smartphone and laptop at your disposal, you still may have use for a tablet PC. Here are some of the reasons you should break down and buy one.
If you look up your emails, Facebook or surf the web on your phone, you are probably constantly scrolling up and down in order to read the screen. Instead of putting up with a small screen of less than 5″, you can use a samsung tablet with a screen that measures up to 10.1″. That is twice the screen size, which makes it much easier to read the information you look up on your smartphone.
Comparable to Laptops
A tablet PC is as powerful as your old laptop and many of the less expensive laptops on the market today. Unless you type a lot, you can use a tablet for the same activities you did on your laptop. In addition, an Android powered tablet offers many more apps and games than your old laptop ever could.
Easier to Carry
For professionals who have to travel for work or that frequently visit clients, they can lighten their load by carrying a tablet instead of a laptop. Even the new, thinner laptops usually weigh seven pounds or more. However, you can put a tablet in your briefcase with the files and other items you need to take with you. It will hold your presentation and other documents that you can print out when you arrive at your meeting.
They are More Reliable
If your laptop crashes, you could lose documents and other important files that you’ve been working on. Fortunately, this isn’t a problem with tablets as they rarely crash. If they do go down, it usually only takes rebooting the tablet to get it back up and running.
Entertainment on the Go
During the commute to work or school, you don’t have to worry about getting bored. Just pull out your tablet and watch a movie, read an eBook or plug in your ear buds and enjoy some music on your tablet.
Be Productive Anywhere
With a larger screen, it will be easier to read your emails, check your calendar and pull up documents shared on the cloud. Taking a tablet with you to lunch or to a meeting is much easier to do than lugging your laptop wherever you go. By taking your tablet with you, you don’t have to wait until you are at your desk to get work done.
While a tablet PC isn’t perfect, it is a very good tool to use for work or it can be used for fun wherever you go as well.
