Tablet with keyboard or laptop?

Tablet with Keyboard or Laptop?

I personally like to use a tablet with a keyboard more often than my Laptop. I think it's the ease of use compared to a laptop. Don't get me wrong, Laptops rock, and they have their purpose. But if you're doing general online things, a good tablet with a wireless keyboard works just as good. I have a microsoft surface that works perfectly for me. If I no longer want to use my tablet as a PC, I just revert it back to a tablet. 

 

What do you prefer?

A Microsoft surface isn't a tablet. It's a device which can be used as tablet or as laptop. If you attach a keyboard it's equal to any other Laptop (it runs Windows 10).

Do you own any "real" tablet? (One based on Android or iOS)

my vote would have gone to 'laptop with external keyboard/mouse/monitor/hdd/speakers.

 

also i tried a bluetooth keyboard once, still got it actually,

but it lags, i bought another mini keyboard with usb connection, no lag

Who invented that definition? You?

 

What makes the Surface not a tablet?

It depends where I use it and for what I use it.

 

For work: Big Desktop PC with or or two big screens and periphery

For gaming: Big Desktop PC with one big screen

For work with lots of typing outside: A ThinkPad notebook. Because the screen and keyboard are one stable unit it's easy to put that thing also on my legs and type - if necessary.

For looking at the news or videos on the sofa: MS Surface without the keyboard

For emergency work computer usage far away from home: The MS Surface with keyboard (because it's small and light)

I would swear by the MacBook Air (not a fan of Apple), but my four kids claim the Surface is amazing. You pays your money and you takes your chance.

Microsoft. They usually use terms like "Use it like a laptop or tablet", but don't call it just "tablet"

If you refer to something as a tablet, 99% of users will think about something like an iPad or an Android tablet with many constraints.

They won't think about a Windows 10 device which is a fully fledged laptop if you attach the keyboard.

 

If OP wants to compare his surface to any common laptop, he could as well have asked: Do you prefer a laptop with a fixed or a detachable keyboard?

I prefer my laptop connected by a HDMI cable to my 42" TV. Using a wireless mouse to navigate and the onscreen keyboard, I can sit comfortably in my recliner, read my email, the news, stream video and type.

I mostly use it as a tablet, as it's what I use on the go for the most part. I had a Samsung Galaxy tab for a while, but sold it as it wasn't meeting my needs. If anything, I'd say it's a tablet/laptop combo.

This is pretty much the same for me. I have a desktop PC as well and it sits in my room, I use that mostly for gaming and extensive work stuff. My surface is used when I want to be more relaxed while working, and I can move around my home easier too.
