Transcript of "Choosing between a tablet and a laptop"

  1. 1. Choosing Between a Tablet and a Laptop Source: http://laptopreplacementparts.tumblr.com/post/30852118656/choosin
  2. 2. Choosing between the two is a matter of which attributes a user placesmore importance on. For users that play full-fledged video gamesand/or watch Blu-ray movies, the decision is easier (laptops, in caseyou were wondering). For more casual consumers, however, the choiceis harder to make.In an effort to make things easier for casual computer users, below arethe most pertinent deciding factors, along with which portable PCholds the advantage for each.
  3. 3. The Control MethodThis should be the most obvious difference between the two. If wehave to simplify things, laptops can be considered desktops whichjust happen to be portable. This means that theFunctionality of programs that run on desktopsThe keyboardAnd mouse type of controlNecessary to operate them – carry over to laptops as well.
  4. 4. Tablets, on the other hand, are designed to be more:•“On-the-Go.”•The control interface is designed to be quicker and more intuitive;hence•The touch-control method they employ.If you prefer to take things quick and easy, go with tablets. If youprefer total control, laptops would suit you better.
  5. 5. The SizeLaptops may be bulkier than tablets, but the power of their laptopcomponents more than make up for it. On the flipside, tablets weredesigned with extreme portability very high on the goals list. If theability to carry a computer in the easiest way possible matters to you,tablets win this round.
  6. 6. The Battery LifeAnother advantage that less powerful specs gives to tablets is thatthey have longer battery lives. Laptop parts require more resources,sucking more juice out of their batteries.If you find yourself away from wall sockets more often than not, youmay want to give tablets serious consideration.
  7. 7. The Storage SpaceSmaller casings leave less room forairflow to cool heat-generatingcomputer parts, so the smaller acomputer’s chassis, the lesspowerful (and less likely to generateheat) its hardware should be.Tablets use solid state drives insteadof hard disk drives becauseThe former perform fasterGiving off less heat in the process.However, the current technology level is such that SSDs can only carryso much info. Their storage capacity is significantly less than those ofHDDs, many of which can contain terabytes of data.Laptops, with their larger chassis, are outfitted with HDDs (at least,laptops bigger than ultraportables are). Therefore, they can carry muchmore data.
  8. 8. The PriceAt first glance, tablets seem to be the better deal, with most pricescoming to around $500. Meanwhile, laptop prices can range from $400to $2,000, depending on size and power level.A closer look, however, will tell you that pound-for-poundfunctionality-wise, both types of portable PCs are pretty much evenedout. If you’re really budget-conscious, you would be better offcomparing the prices of laptops against other laptops; and the samegoes for tablets.All things considered, with both machines, you generally get what youpay for.
