People often wonder if they should purchase a netbook or a tablet. This is a good question to ask. It depends on how you want to use it. Netbooks as of now are generally more user friendly. You can easily edit office documents, listen to music, and browse the net with ease. Since they can run windows you will likely be able to use most of the usual applications. This is of a great convenience. Tablets on the other hand are up and coming. Application support is up and coming as well. So one may not be able to find everything they need in a tablet such such as software and size limitations. However, the trend of things is that tablets will be the future of mobile computing. We anticipate netbooks will be slowly phased out as tablets address a lot of compatibility and logistical issues.
