but what if you could get a lightweight tablet like touch screen with a keyboard with a plethora of USB?
introducing: The Laptop !
in your case i get its cheap 'computing'
tablets are customised HTPC UI's with nothing much more than casual in mind or very task specific. This is fine choice is good. Something about paying for less functionality than a laptop irks, im not sure why its just everytime i use one im very bored with it in a matter of minuets and it doesn't do what i need aswell as a laptop like playing HD video on a decent sized screen that others can share and watch too, typing is a lot worse,the sound is worse, the options to play a real decent games aren't there, everything costs. Just seems like a slightly more portable laptop without a physical keyboard and less of everything that i find useful, of course this is how things are.. each to their own, they made sense when laptops were as big as a house but now a laptop can come close in real terms to a tablet.
but then again, i don't use tablets for two reasons .. one is i have a decent enough smart phone for on the go and the other is all your data is at risk you literally have no idea what half the apps people are banging on their andriod devices can scavenge perhaps even banking information or what attack could happen on the wifi/bluetooth (yes same can be said for a phone but i use it as a phone )
so yea 2014 and a tablet still isn't for me, don't think it ever will be but i can see the initial attraction.
