Multimedia Tablet Tips and Guide

Guide for buying a tablet

The tablet is becoming very popular technological tool, given the great technological development which has led to a fall in prices that has made it accessible to a large part of the population. The continuous and rapid technological development, however, make it very difficult to choose exactly which tablet is best suited to your needs. The risk is that once purchased, once it comes out a new one that could have the best features you were looking for. And well then implement an appropriate choice, and in this tutorial you will see what is important to remember in buying a tablet.

I said at the outset that, although now the prices are dropping, buying a tablet involves a considerable expense, and therefore need to focus on something that has more or less everything that you need, rather than something that is rarely used or replaced in a short.

buying a tablet involves a considerable expense

Firstly your tablet will be fast, if you need to manage multiple applications at once, so you will have to look after the gHz of the processor. Already a processor for more than a gHz is a great purchase, but if you need more speed and are willing to spend more, my advice is to leave this level.

A classic problem is the choice of screen size. The classic question is 7 or 10 inch (or so)? Keep in mind that with a 10-inch tablet undoubtedly you will be able to write better, because the keyboard is much more accessible, and if you have your fingers a little large, 7-inch that you may be uncomfortable, but if you have to carry it around, undoubtedly the 7 inch is more practical, so as to fit comfortably in the bag of a woman. And consider the pros and cons. And of course the 10-inch is always a higher price than a 7 inches one.

The operating system also wants its part in a price equal. Andoid system is much more functional and useful than its rival Apple which makes money instead in fluidity and graphics.

More important point is wifi or 3g? If you frequently use the Internet or any social network, unless you do not have wifi networks wherever you go, the 3g is highly recommended, although obviously its integration is priced fairly high (probably at least 50-100 euro more in some cases). Lastly, if you can choose between a tablet with capacitive screen with a stylus, choose one, because it is infinitely more convenient than using your fingers.
