Tablets: Buying Guide

Tablet PCs are an extremely lucrative and profitable market these days, and with so many companies producing their own versions of PC tablets, choosing which one to spend your cash on can be difficult. This article will look at some of the different types of digital tablets are available and which one is best for you.

Cost

The most important factor to consider when purchasing a tablet PC is the amount of money you wish to spend. Prices for computer tablets can range massively, from low price HP tablets or Toshiba tablets to the expensive Apple iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom.

When determining you budget bear in mind that many of the more expensive tablet PCs (especially the iPad 2) are also considered fashion items, and while this in no way detracts from their function as tablet computers, you will often find yourself paying more for these types of tablet PC.

Operating Systems

Despite so many companies manufacturing their own tablet PCss, there are only a few Operating Systems from which you can choose. The three main tablet PC operating systems are iOS (Apple's system), Android (Google’s system) and Windows (Microsoft's system).

iPads are the only tablets which run the Apple iOS system. So if you like the design layout of the iPad, then this is the only option for you. Android and Windows platforms however can be used by any manufacturer of tablet hardware and as such have a much wider range of tablets for you to choose from. As a result of this, Android and Windows tablets have a vast range of sizes, memory capacities, designs, features and most importantly prices.

Function

By exploiting this, be sure to get the tablet that is most suited to what you need - be it a device for work, or a portable entertainment centre. Function is an extremely important factor to consider when buying a Tablet PC. Android and iOS tablets are excellent multimedia devices designed with gaming, internet searches, social networking, music, video and photographs in mind.

Windows devices, however, are equipped with more work based applications - making them more suitable as laptop replacement devices. With thousands of 'apps' available from each platform's individual store, being able to perform any task is possible whether you use iOS, Android or Windows.

Remember to keep an open mind when buying a tablet PC - while you may want one particular format, consider your options before spending your money.

Finally, try to test each individual tablet PC you consider - unlike traditional PCs or Laptops, digital tablets are about sensation and touch, so researching on the Internet may not do them justice.
