    Tablets are one of the hottest products on the market. Which tablet is right for you? When you consider all of the features they offer, you can understand why so many people are using them to not only supplement their laptops but also to replace them entirely.

    • Instant On – no waiting for lengthy boot-ups
    • Versatility – Entertainment, Games, Videos, Music, Content, eBooks, Web browsing, emails
    • Easily transported and light-weight
    • App Stores make it easy to add programs
    • Less worries with regards to security, configurability
