Tablet or PC: Making the upgrade
With the holiday shopping season now well underway, many people are looking to make upgrades to their computers. Given the hype surrounding tablet computers at the moment, this is an obvious place of interest for many shoppers, but some are likely to stick with the reliable standbys, like desktop and laptop computers, this holiday season.
Choosing between a tablet and a more traditional PC can be a difficult task. The tablet, with a longer battery life and an unassuming form factor, is ideal for portability and getting work done on the go, while laptops and desktops are known for their robust capabilities, like greater processing power and onboard storage space.
Traditional computers also have the advantage of the physical keyboard, which many users appreciate. But the tablet comes with a certain cool factor, which can't be ignored.
Ultimately, a shopper should determine what the device will be used for. If media consumption and portability are the primary needs, a tablet computer may be the best bet. If the device is needed to create documents and won't likely travel frequently, a more traditional PC could be the right choice. For those who just like the thrill of shopping for new electronics, simply choosing is half the fun.
