Laptop vs Tablet: Which one to buy?
1. What should you do before deciding between a laptop or a tablet?
It can be quite to challenge when it comes to picking the right computer between laptops or tablets with so many options. So I should focus on something to consider before buy one; firstly what you want to do with your computer and secondly where would you use it. The Laptop is perfect option for most student. Power and performance combined together to the light weight frame, a laptop has bigger storage data and laptop faster than tablet.
On tablet, I considered that Tablets are perfect for who only need to use for less demanding though such as taking notes browsing the internet or reading documents. So it’s ideal for those who need to work on the go as well as providing great portability that they take up less space and can be easily put away when not in use. After considered these steps, I would choose laptop as student that homework can be done easily.
2. What are some of the key features of each device?
For tablet, it’s significantly smaller than the laptop as well as lighter weight. Another feature that tablet is very light and have long battery life and partner with accessories such as a key board and mouse.
Laptop has bigger screen and and easy to work on any kind of project. The laptop has bigger storage memory than tablet and more capability of CPU and RAM. There are variety of ports that you can find on a laptop such as HDMI and USB ports etc. Most of the laptop can easily transfers data from BlueRay, DVD and CD.
3. What are three important characteristic of each device that might influence your decision?
For me, first important characteristic for tablet is light weight and smaller size that accessible for any place. Secondly, working on apps (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram etc.) is more comfortable on the tablet. The camera on laptop could substitute an actual video
