  • 6. Lets take the tablet PC for an instance; a fewyears ago tablets were for high profileconsumers in the U.S. Now, tablets like iPadsare in high demand in China, U.K., Japan andin other countries.
  • 7. People all over the world are sellingelectronics for cash just to get the touchexperience that the tablet PC can create. Butapart from the new technological experience,the tablet PC also created a battle for all kindsof portable platforms including the laptop.
  • 8. Tablet PC: From MultimediaToy to Enterprise Powerhouse Since Microsofts introduction of the tablet in 1999, people have known the tablet PC as the expensive toy that is good for multimedia viewing (e.g. movie watching, music playing, internet browsing, eBook reading) and is fitted only for people who have a lot of time left in their daily schedules for playing. Today, however, the tablet PC is proving to be a strong desktop and laptop competitor even in the enterprise and business setting.
  • 9. Tablet PC: From MultimediaToy to Enterprise Powerhouse In fact a study in 2011 showed that almost 72 percent of enterprises and business in America use tablets. What for? Sixty-two percent of the respondents of the study said they use their tablet PC in the office several times a day and the most common use is to check their emails every once in a while (37 percent of responders). Meanwhile, tablets are becoming handier for office people and executives with 13 percent of the respondents saying they use their tablets for giving presentations and 8 percent says they use it for taking notes during meetings.
  • 10. I’m a busy Tablet 
  • 11. Tablet PC: From MultimediaToy to Enterprise Powerhouse The tablet is increasingly becoming a reason for people to sell laptops for cash because of so many advantages including mobility. The most important and beneficial characteristic of the tablet PC is that it is very easy to carry around. I wouldnt need big, bulky laptop bags to take my tablet with me, all I need is a trusty and durable leather case and I can easily put it in my tote bag, and 31 percent of the respondents of the study agree with this.
  • 12. NOW WHO’S THE REALBETTER
  • 13. Tablet PC: From MultimediaToy to Enterprise Powerhouse The size of this mobile device also makes it more desirable over the laptop because it ranges from only 7 inches to 10 inches at max. Its also very light. Most tablets barely weigh a pound as compared with a heavy 3 pounds (minimum) laptop. But probably the best part about the tablet is that its easier to use (via non-complex UI, OS and apps) and it is more interactive than a laptop. A tablet owner can also enjoy a more tactile and controllable experience with a full screen to work on. But thats also a weakness for this portable device. Selling used laptops for an expensive tablet that can easily break isnt really a smart thing to do (especially if youre a clumsy person by nature). Dropping your tablet and breaking its screen will render this portable device useless.
