Tablet PCs are the new rage. The iPad and other tablets have captivated consumers. Unfortunately, many people are discovering the tablets are cumbersome and downright uncomfortable. The tablets are a great idea; however, if you use your tablet for work or school, it can be quite tedious. The design of the tablet is not conducive to reading and responding to emails. If you are creating lengthy documents, a tablet makes it difficult.
The tablet PC is fun and a great new gadget. However, beyond that, it is not as functional as a laptop. For entertainment purposes, the tablet PC is fantastic. It is wonderful if you love watching videos and playing games. Many people that travel for a living, envy laptop users in the airports. Laptop users have the benefit of a full screen and can comfortably use their laptops while waiting for a plane. With the tablet PC, it is difficult to sit comfortable and answer emails or write documents. Since the keyboard is in the screen, you have to lay the tablet flat in order to use it. Many table PC users have discovered how difficult and uncomfortable it is.
Manufacturers have heard the complaints and now you can purchase many accessories to enhance the usability of your tablet. You can now purchase an external keyboard and a stand to create a laptop similar configuration. This allows the user to use the full screen instead of the touch keyboard. The tablet is placed on the stand to make looking at the tablet more ergonomically correct. These accessories are great to use if you are working at a desk for long hours.
In addition, there are many cases in which the tablet fits snug on one side and the keyboard fits on the other side. You open the case and you have the same configuration as a laptop. This makes it convenient to use your table while traveling and helps reduce the neck strain.
