Having A Laptop VS Having A Tablet

Technology is continuously providing us with more flexibility in our lives, with every single innovation beating the preceding ones with a number of criteria. Most probably, we are promised with more advanced innovations in the future, and the following generations will be fortunate enough to interact with them.

The appearance of laptops has caused dramatic transformations in almost everyone’s life, having conquered the desktop PCs and gained more attraction and preference from the public, the first reason being its portability, a thing which the competitor desktop PC was not characterized by.

Recently, however, innovations have been employed in a way to somehow overcome the qualifications and the popularity of the laptop. Some famous and reputable mobile phone enterprises, specifically Samsung and Apple, have pursued the technique of expanding the size of the device with each new brand, until they have come out with what is actually beyond being a mobile phone – the tablet.

Tablets are created with various dimensions, processors, capacities, and also colors, but they all share the feature of being more than a mobile phone (some tablets are compatible with SIM cards), and the question which is still not clearly confirmed: are tablets a convenient alternate for laptops?

Concerning some basic features at first, both a laptop and a tablet are portable. Regarding the weight, it is true that the laptop possesses more heaviness, but let’s not forget that laptops are progressing in the weight decrease with every brand update. We may observe the weight difference between old laptops and the latest devices, even under the same company, such as Acer and Toshiba.

Both devices support internet exploring, wireless internet connection, Bluetooth (almost always), PDF files (also almost always). Regarding the latter, reading e-books is more or less convenient with both devices. I noticed this recently when reading a Chicago Car Accident Lawyer article on the Willens Law Office website. Though the dimensions may represent a source of disturbance for some readers, especially those with visual deficiencies, both are still viable options for most tasks. 

Yes, if you are student who frequently uses e-books, the tablet will occupy a smaller area on your desk than the laptop does, but having you comfortable with this does not necessary mean the same for your colleagues.

Both a laptop and a tablet support keyboards and typing, with the tablet having the keyboard digitally built-in. The vast majority of tablets do also support Microsoft Office software, namely Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Despite the fact that some people actually are alright with using these programs on a tablet, most probably, you will not be able to write, for example, a big document or a report fully by continuous clicking on the tablet screen, with a high likeliness of encountering errors and systemic sluggishness. There is no argument about the advantage of creating your PowerPoint presentation using your laptop, especially when it demands a lot of copy-paste procedures. As a matter of fact, this article itself is brought to you with the aid of the laptop, and I am certain that the process of writing would be very much irritated and decelerated, if carried out on a tablet.
