Tablets and netbooks are becoming very popular alternatives to larger devices such as laptops and typically, with popularity comes a great deal of choice. With different operating systems available, such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, which are both great for streaming videos, playing games and sharing photos on social networking sites and Windows, which is perfect for creativity and productivity on the move, consumers are spoilt for choice.
The iPad Air 2
The iPad Air 2 is arguably the best tablet on the market for 2015. Although Apple products often come with a premium price tag, this tablet is sleek, fast and stunning. With a triple-core A8X processor and a fabulous Retina Display providing superior graphics, the iPad Air 2 is 18% slimmer than the original Air device and offers the added benefits of Touch ID and Apple Pay. Boasting an anti-reflective screen to avoid glare when using it outside, an 8MP iSight camera and over 675,000 apps available through iTunes, the iPad Air 2 is by far the best option when it comes to purchasing a new tablet.
The Google Nexus devices
The Google Nexus 7 is still a great choice for a tablet. Offering a high-resolution 7 inch IPS display and 2GB of RAM, this robust tablet has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. The Google Nexus 9 has an 8.9 inch screen, making it better for watching videos and playing games. With Google Play providing reams of apps for users to choose from, the Nexus tablets are perfect for those who do not wish to pay the premium prices of Apple products.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is a superb tablet for productivity. Whereas most tablets are more like bigger versions of smartphones, the Surface Pro 3 is more like a smaller version of a laptop. With a quad-core processor for improved performance, this hybrid device offers all of the benefits of a tablet and laptop combined. With Windows as its operating system, this tablet gives users the ability to run full desktop software packages such as Photoshop and Microsoft Office.
When it comes to netbooks, there are two fantastic devices that cannot be beaten for performance and productivity. The Lenovo ThinkPad X130e 2338 has an Intel i3-2367M dual-core 1.4GHz processor and a 320GB hard drive. Combined with its 4GB of DDR3 RAM, making it highly responsive even when there is a lot going on at once, and its 11.6 inch screen with 1355×768 resolution, this netbook offers superiority and excellent performance. An added bonus is its 6-cell lithium-ion battery that gives users up to an impressive 9 hours of battery life.
The Asus VivoBook S200E also has a powerful processor and provides speeds of 1.8GHz. With a 500GB hard drive, this netbook offers more storage than the Lenovo ThinkPad and also has 3 USB 3.0 ports, a memory card reader and both VGA and HDMI ports. With fibre optic internet, these netbooks offer super-fast connectivity and are just as suitable for Wi-Fi connections.
