Before tablet was out on the market, laptop was created for mobility. It was not easy for you to work while you were on the go if you only had a desktop. But now, there are tablets that are powerful more than laptops. But tablets has limitations. I think you can't connect more external devices to it like laptop does where you can even connect multiple external devices with the help of USB hubs. But there are tablets even for hardcore gaming which not all laptops are capable of. I think it just a matter of what you use the device for. How about you? Laptop or tablet? Photo: Pixabay

I still go for laptop. You can still carry it if being handy is the issue. Laptop can store as many as you can.

Exactly, especially if you are working using your laptop. You can really multitask.

You may try using a tablet. You may find it useful too if you are not multitasking that much.

I'm going to say something different from the rest. I don't want to use either. I don't even have the internet on my phone. I like to be able to leave the online world behind me when I'm not at home.

I understand. Sometimes our eyes needs rest. Sometimes we need to go out and breath far from the digital world.

Correct. There are important programs that are not compatible with tablets even though the tablet is running windows 10.

I prefer both. I use a laptop for my online teaching. Tablet for participating any sites that I joined in. It is more convenient when I am out of my hometown. I can use it anytime.

Yes it depends on what I use it for. I have to use laptop for doing my work but if it's just reading and browsing, a tablet works just fine.
