Tablets are becoming increasingly popular with folks.  But, are they the right fit for you?  What do you need to look for? 

Tablets are a good choice for a second computer.  However, if you’re just checking email, doing Facebook and even basically browsing the internet, then a tablet may be a better choice.  If you’re running specialized software, if you do a lot of writing or using spreadsheets, need a bigger screen or a real keyboard, a laptop is definitely the better choice.  If people like this, a tablet would be a good second computer to just browse the internet while sitting on the couch.  Tablets are also more expensive fix and getting a replacement warranty might make sense. 

Another option is to choose a 2-in-1 (or convertible) laptop.  This type of laptop will convert from a traditional laptop to a tablet form.  Using a convertible laptop would be a good “in between”.  More and more 2-in-1 laptops have touchscreens as well. 

Come into our shop and talk to a technician and we can give you some advice on what to look for.  We can also get any type of computer you’re looking for.  We’re located in the same plaza as Osaka and Coyote Kitchen, which is right next to Walmart in Boone.  You can also call as for an appointment at 828-262-3359.
