Are you always on the go? Then you probably need to
switch to tablet PCs – portable computers with digitizing or touch
screen tablets. You can easily operate them directly using the screen
with a tablet pen, a stylus, or your very own fingertips. They do not
require the use of a mouse or keyboard anymore since they can recognize
your handwriting and converts it into text in digital format.
Should you switch?
A lot of models for tablet PCs are for mobile use. They are best for illustration and design, basic note-taking, and field work.
Types of tablet PCs
There are two kinds of tablet PC models: the Slate and the Convertible.
Slate tablet PC
does not have a keyboard that is integrated into it, which means that
you rely solely on the screen for data input. Also known as the PDA
(Personal Data Assistant), the Slate is lighter, smaller, and can
connect to a portable keyboard that you can separately buy.
Convertible tablet PC
from having touch screen functions, this model has a touch pad and a
keyboard, which makes it similar to a laptop's appearance. The screen
can fold back to to the keyboard and can swivel up to 180 degrees.
Choosing your tablet
you want to buy your own tablet PC, check on its gesture recognition to
ensure that it can easily recognize special movements of the stylus so
the writing efficiency is increased. Furthermore, ensure that you can
program it to respond to different methods for certain gestures of the
stylus. Also, make sure to check on its security functions. Look for
one that has password protection and file encryption.
