It is well documented that Tablets are becoming more popular over laptops and desktop computers. Both of those have their place for higher end purposes. But Tablets in particular the new Microsoft-surface Pro are changing the ways in which people and general computing purposes are conducted. Along with the Ipad, the tradtional means of computing on either a computer or a laptop is coming to an end for many.
Desktop and laptop computers can perform much better than Tablets. That being said, Tablets can be better utilised for the casual person i.e. the person who only wants to use basic office software and website browsing. Desktop and laptop computers are better utilised for purposes such as gaming, website development, games creation etc. So that means that the two types of computers will always have their place even if it will be stifled in the end.
Tablets have a very good feature and that is they can be linked with telephone software. With some tablets, that said tablet can have the same os as a smartphone enbaling that Tablet to get the same features on the go. One of the best examples is the IPad and IPhone. Software can be used directly between the two unless something is version specific.
It is interesting to see this kind of cross-connectivity. The ways in which computing operates changes every year. For now though, Tablets and their connectivity with smartphones seems to be a sure-fire way of success.
