There is a debate as to whether or not tablets are better than laptops. This is something that really has interested me. In this essay we will compare the differences between three tablets and three laptops to see if we can determine whether tablets are better than laptops or vise versa.

Tablets in most cases weigh less than 2 pounds, and some are even less than 1 pound.

So portability would have to go the tablets, due to their sleek and small design. You can just throw your tablet in your bag or even just hold on to without having your arm get tired. Not only are tablets small and sleek and portable, but also they are also great for kids that are stuck in the car on a long car ride. All you have to do is just turn on Netflix,...
