Laptop, Tablet, or Mobile

crying

Please give me back my laptop! I am begging! Somehow my hard drive got screwed up so my laptop must be repaired. Meanwhile my daughter let me borrow her Kindle tablet. I appreciate it and I hate it! How do people work via tablets and mobile devices? My eyes are so weary. My back hurts. I never really learned how to type and trying to use the keyboard is a headache! How can it be that so many people practically live on their tablets or mobile devices like the iPhone or Android? I appreciate advances in technology and all of these portable wonders. But I really want my laptop back! I am trying not to cry. But I can't help myself!

Phoning is okay but not blogging. My IPad is good but not better than my computer

Looks like you'll have to get it repaired- you'll only be without for an afternoon!

I've been without for a few days but when I woke up this morning I noticed my daughter had fixed my laptop. So! I'm back to work and doing a lot of catch up stuff! Thank the Lord for my "in house geek". My children are life savers when it comes to this tech stuff!

@MarymargII - Isn't it great that they know and that you don't have to pay for their advice?

Interesting discussion. I am thinking about getting a tablet so I could do some of my mystery shop reports when I am away from home, like in a coffee shop. But I would need one that can have a keyboard attached. On screen typing would be very tedious.

The tablets do prove to be useful when you're on the move and/or when your laptop breaks. I get now why people buy them now. If it weren't for my laptop breaking though, I may not have ever understood the appeal.

I prefer working and web surfing on my laptop to either a tablet or my smartphone. It is just so much easier. I hope you get your laptop back soon.

Welcome to the club, I have a tablet and an Ipad, but don't ask me to use my Mylot there, no way!!! I can't just go through the discussions and happily interact with the tablet, I find it more convenient when I am traveling, to watch something in Youtube, or play some games, so I don't need to think about travelling, but when it come to chat with friends on Facebook, or interact here in Mylot, my tablet is not even an option, it's my laptop, definitely my laptop, so I can understand that feeling that you are having right now

Don't worry give yourself time and then you will also get used to, using tab.

I use a lap top and I love it personally. My kids all have IPADS I like those as well but for the most part especially for writing and such I prefer my laptop. I guess it all depends on what you are using the device for. If you have to store a lot of things then a laptop or regular desktop would probably be better. If you store or save a lot items you might want to consider using a back up system such as usb sticks or cd's. I started recently doing that myself when I had a close call and almost lost a lot of my picutres and a manuscript that I was working on. luckily I was able to recover everything but since then I save everything
