Wednesday, June 20, 2012 You travel more or less? You want access to your data anytime anywhere? You need a compact device? You want to store lots of data? Well, if you have been wondering whether to buy a tablet or a notebook, here is some help. These five points can help you take an informed decision. Here is how:

Create or Consume data?

It is important for you to know that tablet is more of a consumption device, while a notebook is something where you can create stuff. For the simple reason, that typing on a tablet’s screen is quite a daunting task and you would not want to torture yourself with lengthy documents. However, if you need to access your e-mails, reply, browse the Web or even carry out video conference, then tablet can be a handy option.

Your Software Needs?

If you need Office Suites, then notebook should be your primary choice because the notebook’s office suite is far more advanced as compared to the tablets’. However, tablets have some apps that are not only cheaper but quite fun to use. There are scores of applications that can satiate your productivity, photography, gaming, social networking, music, reading needs.

notebook, tablet, decision, five tips




How Much Do You Want To Store?

If you highly depend on media and like to store large number of music, video files, photos, then notebook should be your choice. Most of the notebooks offer up to 320 GB storage capacity, which can go up to 1024 GB (1 terabyte). On the other hand, tablets mostly come in the variation of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB so if you store too many files, tablet is not the right choice.

Need a Travel Partner?

It is a pretty known fact that when it comes to portability, tablet is way ahead of notebook. So you get decent battery back-up and a not much load on your shoulders.

Need to Connect With Other Devices?

If you have to pair your device with a projector, printer, pen drives etc, notebook is a clear winner. However, tablet now offers 3G capabilities as well as Wi-Fi, so data can still be transferred easily. Moreover, most hotels offer Wi-Fi facility, so tablet can be handy there as well.
