In response to our article, “What’s The Difference Between Tablets, Laptops and iPads,” Tina writes: Wow! ! ! Best information . What do you think b ouh that I have ever heard, seen or even been told and I am surrounded by computer gurus! ! !I have given everyone the info of what I want a device to do yet, nobody could tell me the differences or what device I wanted based on the info that I had give them. Looks like it will be a notebook since I want something that I can use like a laptop without the weight. Also want to be able to play simple games like on my cellphone. Don’t want to use it as a cellphone though but some of the same also along with music. My illness makes my laptop too heavy but that or my cellphone is what I use to do banking, ordering items, etc.
Am I on the right track??? Based off of what I have told you, do you think that is the way to go since I definitely can’t afford both! Besides my Drs, my youngest son has rare condition that I use letters for. Also, my oldest 3 sons were in the military with one still in as a Green Beret in Special Forces so that is about the only way that I have in keeping in touch with him. Your advice will be taken to heart 1,000,000,000 %
Tina – I think you are on the right track. A 7-inch tablet with the option of a detachable keyboard seems like it would suit your needs pretty well. You’d still be able to play games, but also have the ability to send e-mails or compose documents using an office app.
You could go with either a Windows tablet, Android or iPad mini depending on how much you want to spend and which system you feel more comfortable with.
You might also consider a larger phone like the Galaxy Note. It’s a functional cell phone, but it’s also large enough to serve as a small tablet. You can connect via Wi-Fi when you’re home, so these activities won’t gobble up your data plan.
