The Laptop and Tablet PC War

Choosing between a tablet and a laptop is one of the decisions that a lot of people face today. These two gadgets are considered to be the hottest commodity when it comes to telecommuting. Office people cannot leave home without these, including their 4-port iPad charging station stand, as it has become part and parcel of their workaday world. They cannot do their jobs if they do not have any of these gadgets with them.


Can a Tablet PC replace your laptop?

Now if you are one of those people who are yet to become a member of the new generation toting these gadgets, then it is time to finally get yourself one. Laptops were the most popular thing in 2010 when they were at its peak of sales. Now that tablet PCs are proliferating, it is eating up the sales of laptops and is predicted to continue to rise until something new will be made available to the general public. Along with the gadget sales, also come the peripherals including the iPad charging station which is essential for those who are always on the go using their tablet PCs.

As to what item to purchase, whether a laptop or tablet PC, it really depends on what you need. There are several considerations you can ponder upon before finally arriving at a decision. Of course, we all want to make our life easier which is the reason why we are buying this but the other factors will determine what the specs of the gadget will be.

If you are buying for your kid who is still in school, you would want something sturdy and easy to use. You may have the budget to go for the most expensive gadget but the question here is if it would be practical for your student. Portability and accessibility are the two main areas of concern when it comes to students so buying a tablet PC would be more practical. It would be even better if you also get an iPad charging station so that they would have no problem with their battery. The memory capability can also be on the higher side to be able to store more files.

So, what would you choose?

However, for those who are looking for an office gadget, you can opt to get a laptop or a tablet PC, depending on the load work that you have. If the work you have involves doing presentations to clients, then a tablet PC would be sufficient. Files can be transferred through the Thunderbolt cable for easy updates. But for those whose work involves a lot of number crunching and encoding, then a laptop would be more practical since the keyboard size and the screen size would be able to carry on the load. It really depends on what you need to do when deciding on what gadget to buy. Go with what you really find useful.

    Evidently, tablet cannot replace PC or laptop, but do we really need it? Keep using your PC and take your tablet with you for the week-end or wherever you need! Why choosing between two – have both and enjoy your life! 🙂

      Right on, Robert! But then not everyone wants to have both gadgets for that “streamlined”/less carbon footprint lifestyle. But yes, I have both laptop and tablet.

    I think that it’s very possible. I myself prefer the tablets compared to laptops. If we can do a lot with them, then why do we not use one that is easier to carry around.

    Hi Heather, I too think that why do we need to choose between the two, why not have both? I agree with what Robert said in his comment, laptops are the best when it comes to work but it doesn’t look good to carry your laptop everywhere, you can have a tablet PC for other purposes.
