If you are still undecided between buying a laptop or PC and a tablet, let us make things simpler for you. A tablet may not be that piece of junk you think it to be and can be quite useful. How does a tablet differ from a PC and how can it be useful? Here is a look.
The major difference between a tablet and a PC is the operating system. Sure, you have Windows operating system by Microsoft on tablets these days too but that is a Windows operating system that is specifically designed for the tablets and not otherwise. The major difference is that, in tablets you may not be able to install programs and games the way you do in your PC. For example, you cannot install an .exe Windows file in your tablet. So if you are a business freak, you may not be able to install crucial programs to run on your tablet which you could otherwise on your PC.
But does that mean no program can be installed?
The question is, what would you use your tablet for? If you are a general user who does not do any business work on their PC, a tablet is actually the right and handy choice for you. Here is why.
You can download most of the programs and run them on your PC. True, these programs do not run in the format they do in your PC but they are available in the app store. For example, if you buy an Android tablet, Android has an app store featuring millions of apps that you can download. Many of those apps are free as well. So, you can download VLC player and install it like you do in your PC.
Watching videos and playing games is a way lot more fun. With your PC, you have to get a mouse and then reserve a place to keep the PC or desktop which eat up space. No need to do so with your tablet. What’s more, as tablets are touch screen devices, and offer high resolution displays much better than conventional PC’s or laptops, you will surely be immersed and yearn for more. Playing games can be really amazing on touch screen devices. Plus, you can always connect your Bluetooth mouse and keyboard to your tablet as well. With the thousands and thousands of games available on download directly from the app store, it just could not be easier.
Operating on Android tablets is fun. This is because the interface is smooth and you do not have the tablet hanging up as can happen with old PC’s due to less processor firepower. Today, a good 10 inch Android tablet will help you get a processor that is quite able to multi task all you do easily.
Playing music on tablets is fun. Let’s face it. We all love music and listening to music with your headphones through a tablet is way more fun. And why not?? Connect your headphone and be mobile while using the tablet. You do not need to restrain yourself to one place while listening to the music!
Tablets are not overpriced. You really do not need to spend $600 and above to buy a PC. Instead, you can buy a good 10 inch Android tablet that offers a big display for as less as $200. An Android tablet is your buy if you need something steady and budget friendly. Sounds cool, right?
Well, surely you do not think tablets are useless now, do you?
