I bought a new laptop just over 2 years ago. I seriously considered getting a tablet at that time. I loved the idea of portability and a size small enough that I could keep it with me all the time. I wanted it to work as a smaller lighter laptop, effective for checking email and working on blog posts when I was on the go. In the end, I opted for another laptop and decided to make sure it was light, so I didn’t mind carrying it when I was traveling, because I decided it wouldn’t do what I wanted to.
Flash forward to the present. My husband is now looking to replace his laptop, and he started having the same thoughts I did. Things have changed a lot in two years!
If the Acer Iconia W3 tablet had been around, I think I might have been sold, and I think that’s the direction we’re going to go when we replace our second laptop. It truly has the functionality of a PC, including the pre-installed Microsoft Office suite.
My old college roommate just sent her oldest daughter to college (Let’s not talk about how we’re not old enough for that reality!). She said she bought a Windows tablet, because she’ll use it for her textbooks.
The technology world changes quickly, as the rise of tablets proves, and the differences in their functionality from the last time I looked into them until now.
