In world of tablets, laptops must adapt
Though the laptop has been a staple of the computing world for more than two decades, it has only managed to stay on top because manufacturers have adapted to evolving demands. With the recent emergence of the tablet, laptop manufacturers have their work cut out for them like never before.
According to a report from news provider the International Herald Tribune, the future of laptops will be influenced heavily by the tablet market. Though both devices excel in different areas, the two are likely to compete for many of the same customers.
However, rather than feel threatened by tablets, laptop manufacturers can learn from the emerging technology, the news provider notes. For example, laptops may move away from the traditional clam-shell lid and make better use of their shape by incorporating dual or sliding screens.
