Many people buy a laptop to use as their main computer at home. Many are as powerful as a full PC but they save on space and can be easily moved from room to room.
Laptops are far more powerful than tablets so, if you plan on serious productivity, a laptop is your best choice. Faster graphics and more memory, coupled with a larger screen and more storage space, means that projects such as editing home videos and photos, or running the latest games, are better on a laptop.
Laptops also have lots of ports to allow connections for digital cameras, music players and printers – which isn’t so easy with a tablet.
