“Instead of wasting time with a “reader” or pad like device…get a laptop or “air book”. … But the pad is nothing more than a keyboardless/mouseless device. You can still get stuff done faster on a laptop or desktop.”
Can I easily use a laptop standing? While I’m in a line?
While sitting in a car, bus, or train? Sitting in the bleachers waiting for my kid to finish practice? In a waiting room?
Lying down on the couch or in bed?
If a doctor wants to walk in and show a patient the results of an MRI, what’s the better choice: notebook or tablet?
How about doing a sales presentation at a kitchen table or sitting on a living room couch?
Pulling up a schematic of the HVAC system while on a job site? Carrying and reading a backlog of research papers?
Understand. It’s not so much that the same function can be done with a notebook.
It’s that the tablet is easier to carry and easier to use in many circumstances and locations where using a notebook would be awkward at best, if not downright impossible.
Think “on the go,” and not “parked” at a desk or table.
