If you find a laptop cumbersome for your daily life, the PC tablet can be for you. As someone who works from home, and travelling frequently I find it a pain to carry my laptop everywhere. The PC tablet has been the best thing to remedy the bulky laptop. Basically, anything you can do with a laptop can be done with a tablet. Currently, you have all the big boys like HP Samsung, Toshiba, and Blackberry getting into this world. Google has gotten involved with the operating system through acquiring Android, and Apple, and Windows of course have their operating systems. However, these tablets can be very expensive and really your just paying for the name. You can find less expensive tablets that can offer you everything the major brands can offer. My tablet that I use can allow me to read ebooks, write excel PPT, and word docs. I can watch video, check email, and listen to radio. Downloading apps for these devices is so easy, and you can actually delete them easy as well.
Before you go and buy into the branding machine that the major tablet manufacturers have you buy into, my suggestion is to consider some other options that are less expensive. They all do the same thing and if you are like me and watching your cash, you could really benefit from looking around.
