Tablet or Laptop? It is a huge question going on in my mind for the past couple of months. After analyzing my below requirements, I could decide what I need.
Operating System: iOS, Windows, Android??
Personally for me, I’m using windows operating system for the past 15 years both for work and for personal use. So it’s natural for me to go for windows operating system.
Usage: Just browsing and playing or do I need to use it for productivity?
When looking for a tablet or a laptop, I would like to use it for productivity like development, and browsing as well as playing.
Form Factor: What’s the size best for me?
For me, 7 inch tablets are not useful for productivity. 14 inch laptops are not easy to carry on the go. So I would like something in between like 10 to 12 inches.
Considering all this conditions I came up with the decision of buying a windows convertible laptop as well as Microsoft surface pro. A convertible will be easy to hold and it comes with Windows. It can be also useful for productivity works, like all my requirements in one. Just like a convertible surface pro is also windows which can be used for both productivity and playing.
Below are the tablet and convertibles I’ve shortlisted. I planning buy one of them after the release of Windows 8.1.
- Windows Surface Pro.
- Lenovo yoga 11s.
- Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook
