People are no longer carrying around bulky laptops to access emails, type up Word documents and navigate the Internet if they don’t have to. This is the era of the tablet. Consider three key reasons why you might need one.
- The point of the tablet is to be able to take it everywhere, from the coffee shop to the mall to the lake outside of your office. You break out your iPad while watching ducks swim across a pond, and with networked tablets you can pull up a page and blog about it at the same time.
- Most networks, if not all, offer the iPad, Samsung, and a ton of others, so that when you pick a tablet, you get one that works best for your needs. After all, tablets have varying features, which means they aren’t one size fits all.
- Prices vary so your first decision is if you need WiFi on the tablet. Tablets with internet included are more expensive as it adds another data line. If you’re not going to be on the internet with the tablet, is much less expensive. If y9u are, check your carrier to find the best options.
- Child use – tablets have become much less expensive than smartphones so it you’re planning to let your child use it for moves, games and so forth, consider the cost to repair or replace if the screen breaks. A screen on the newest iPhone or Samsung is much more expensive to replace than on a good tablet.
The 13 Tablets Worth Buying Right Now
Tablets have yet to make themselves essential, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t nice to have around. A good tablet can be a portable TV screen around the house, or a great way to enjoy apps and games on the go. The iPad’s ease of use and best-in-breed software still make it the obvious choice for most people, but if you don’t want an iPad, there are options. Android tablets have become useful enough to consider, and Amazon’s incredibly affordable tablets are also worth it if your needs are light. Finally, if you mostly need a laptop that can stand in for a tablet, a Windows 2-in-1 might be your best bet. Be sure to check out all of WIRED’s Buying Guides.
