Tablet PCs have taken the world by storm in the last few years, but with the speed that they came into the marketplace, a lot of people were left scratching their heads. “Why is this better than a laptop?” is the big question that comes out of a lot of people’s mouths. They probably haven’t held a tablet in their hands to see just how simple it is to use, and the versatility that it offers. If you are one of the naysayers, then here is a list of different ways that a tablet can make your life easy.
1. Reading On The Go
Whether you are a daily reader of the New York Times, or enjoy weekly comic books, tablet PCs have applications that are going to give you a better reading experience than books. With the storage of tablets, you can keep hundreds of books, newspapers, comics, or reference materials well in hand to check and use whenever the need arises.
2. Media Whenever
Music videos, movie rentals, and television programs are all ready for you with a local hot-spot nearby. Between Netflix and Hulu, you might find that you have no need to have cable anymore!
With a USB connector, any tablet can become a quick way to get a document you need. No need to log on to a foreign computer to get what you need. Jack in your tablet, and print whatever you choose.
4. Reviews All The Time
Have you ever been torn between two restaurants, and you wished you had competent reviews to check out? Pop the name of the places in on your tablet, and you are immediately given all of the details you need.
5. Weight Concerns
Laptops can be heavy pieces of equipment. With a tablet, you will do away with all of that undo shoulder strain. Keep it in a safety sleeve, and your tablet should fit right in any bag you carry with you.
6. A Second Screen
Perfect for college students, a tablet is the reference book on your lap while you type your thesis. Instead of having multiple windows open which can get messy and confusing, a tablet makes an ideal second monitor for getting twice as much work done.
7. Portable Backup
There are times when you forget things. It happens to everybody. With a tablet, you can keep a backup available with you at all times. That means that when you forget your homework, work report, or information for a physician, it is right there and ready to be retrieved or printed!
It goes without saying that games are a progressively stronger part of the mobile market. Tablets are no exceptions, and if you have a long flight or are just bored at the coffee shop, a tablet is going to help you pass the time with ease.
9. Creating & Writing
Tablets have made the quick transition to being smaller laptops by adding peripherals like small keyboards that can be attached on the go. With that available to you, there is no reason to not keep working on your best selling novel, or create a song using any number of interesting music generators.
10. Getting Used To It
Tablet type computers are only going to become more of the norm. As the screens get larger, the processors get stronger, and the technology becomes cheaper, tablets are going to be here for quite awhile. Early adopters of technology are always ready for when it changes, so shouldn’t you get yourself ready and watch as the evolution of computers happens before your eyes?
Hopefully, if you were questioning the purposes for a tablet before, you now have a good understanding of some of the power these new smaller computers can offer you and your family.
