Laptop vs Tablet

If you’re in the market for a new computer, chances are you’re choosing between a laptop (a portable and compact personal computer) and a tablet (a wireless web-enabled mobile computer with a touchscreen interface).

Many people find that the portability, networking capabilities, entertainment features and affordability offered by both laptops and tablets make them more appealing options compared to traditional desktop computers. But how to decide between the two?

Start by carefully considering what you’ll be doing on your computer. If you love to spend hours casually browsing the web, reading articles and consuming multimedia such as photos, videos and games, a tablet is perfect for these activities thanks to its high pixel density i.e. sharp display.

However, for more labour intensive tasks where you’re using different programs, like Microsoft Office (even writing long emails and using spreadsheets can get fiddly on a tablet), a laptop offers convenience, functionality and performance. The processing capacity of laptops exceeds that of tablets, making them great for multitasking (using a number of applications at once). Not to mention, tablets offer 16GB to 128GB of storage space, whereas the average laptop has 500GB!

Where a tablet shines is its lightweight design and mobility, and longer battery life. Also, most tablets have built-in cellular network connectivity which you can tap into when a Wi-Fi signal isn’t available.

A nifty work around the tablet’s functionality pain point is a compatible, 2-in-1 tablet and laptop where a detachable keyboard is the golden ticket to versatility and flexibility!
