What is not so good about Tablets

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

Tablets too have their share of troubles. To start with, un­like the Ul­tra­books with their large SSD and hard disk drives, tablets barely have any stor­age. They come in dif­fer­ent vari­ants with a max­i­mum of 64GB stor­age, split into on­board or on­board and ex­pand­able. On the pro­duc­tiv­ity front, typ­ing over the touch key­pad is dif­fi­cult, es­pe­cially while typ­ing long doc­u­ments and emails. An al­ter­na­tive can be at­tach­ing a Blue­tooth key­board to the tablet. Even on the pro­cess­ing front, Ul­tra­books have an edge. The re­cently launched tablets have got quad-core pro­ces­sors com­bined with 2GB RAM, but still can’t com­pete on pro­cess­ing power. Ul­tra­books are de­signed with pro­tec­tion for their large screens. The screens of tablets are del­i­cate and ex­posed if you don’t have a pro­tec­tive case. So, all the time, one has to be care­ful with the tablets. And if dam­aged, the re­pair cost of the tablets is much more than the other two.
