Laptop vs tablet, which is right for me?

So you are shopping for a new portable computer. laptop vs tablet, which is better? Tablets and laptops have come a long way in recent years. Sometimes tablets have the same functions as a laptop, even equipped with a removable keyboard. Because they each deliver specialized experiences specific to their users, laptops, and tablets are popular among changing demographics and groups.

Laptops are generally characterized as mobile personal computers. Laptops let you perform all of the tasks you perform on your desktop but in a more mobile, compact way. While laptops have gotten smaller and lighter over the years, they've made tremendous strides regarding performance, power, and functionality.

Tablets are very lightweight, compact and easy to carry, but they do not possess the processing power that a laptop has. A tablet's functionality as a computer is limited, although quite sufficient for the needs of its most common users. Tablet users are usually those who casually browse the internet to read the news or social media or play web-based games or watch TV. Tablets are also used in specialized design and music careers.

When deciding between a laptop and a tablet, the best choice for you is the one that meets your specific needs. Think about the tasks you want the device to complete, and you'll discover which option is most convenient for you.

Michael came to our office and fixed our iMac. He was very thorough and had it up and running in no time. Our office never missed a beat!

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
