Should I buy a tablet ?

The arrival of tablets has provoked a significant shift in the tech market, and are becoming increasingly popular, and with no surprise as this guide shows, they have a lot to offer in both style and substance. However, if you already own a laptop or a desktop computer and a smartphone, you may wonder what a tablet has to offer that is different to the hardware you already own? 

The answer will depend on what you want to do with your laptop, tablet or smartphone. You can browse the net, watch films and send email on all three, but the experience on each is very different. Carrying out a quick Google search on your phone can be instantaneous, pretty quick on your tablet and relatively slow on your laptop. On the other hand email is completely different: you'll experience great difficulty typing more than a few words on a phone and more than a few sentences on a tablet, whereas a laptop gives you a full keyboard and screen.

Investing in a tablet is not going to replace either your smartphone or your laptop, desktop computer, but can make a very useful, versatile and fun addition to your computing hardware.

Tablet buyers' guide

 
   Input

Size and mobility: Are tablets easier to carry around?
Tablet are slim and very lightweight, making them extremely portable and easy to carry around in your bag.
Tablets are perfect for browsing the net, communicating with friends and family, or if you want to listen to music, watch movies, read newspapers and playing games while out and about - waiting in an airport lounge.
While at the same time a tablet can also be used for work by downloading the appropriate office software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc). This versatility gives you the option of being able to do so much more than you can with your smartphone but in a much more portable design than a desktop computer or a laptop.

Typing: Can a touch screen replace a keyboard ?

Tablets are built around a comparatively lower-powered processor, which typically gives tablets better battery life versus your typical laptop, which makes them very practical for connecting and enjoying entertainment or working whilst on the move.

Performance: Ease of use 
Tablets are more intuitive and easier to use than many laptops and computers.
Tablets are great for day-to-day activities like email, web, watching movies, listening to
