Computer Store Finder USA – COMPUTER OR TABLET?
A few years ago, this would have been a silly question. Today, however, tablets can handle almost everything a basic computer can. You can surf the Web, send emails, watch videos, listen to music, read books, play games, and even type up documents. Click here to learn how to choose the right tablet for you.
One inconvenience of tablets used to be the keyboard, or the lack of anything but an on-screen keyboard. Those keyboards can be a hassle, especially if you write up long documents.
But that is no longer the case. Apple sells optional keyboards for its iPads, while other ones like this Bluetooth Wireless keyboard in The Shop are also great.
Microsoft has an attachable keyboard for its Surface tablet. Plus, there are new keyboards coming out all the time, like this super-convenient LG portable keyboard.
Tablets (and smartphones) have also come a really long way in giving you the functionality of a laptop or computer. In fact, Microsoft Windows, the standard tool in most businesses, schools and homes for writing, calculating and presenting information is now available on most devices.
PC, MAC OR CHROMEBOOK?
The PC vs. Mac debate seems to have no beginning or ending. Historically, PCs were cheaper and ran more software while Macs were the expensive, high-quality domain of graphic artists and creative types.
Nowadays, the argument is mostly academic. PCs and Macs run most types of software that you need and, in fact, you can install Microsoft’s Windows 10 on Macs.
Macs are still considered premium computers, but more people are buying them for everyday use thanks to their stability, build quality and air of coolness. But, now that Windows 10 is proving to be quite popular, and it’s free, Windows-based PCs are giving Macs a run for their money.
Macs don’t go as low in price as PCs, so you could be paying more than you should for what you need. Plus, contrary to the hype, Macs aren’t immune to viruses – you still need security software.
