Are Laptops or Tablets Better For College Students?
A tablet is lightweight which is no doubt an advantage for a college student.
The operating system can be optimized for tablet use (i.e. android/iOS tablets). For a touch screen computer this is harder to achieve.
There are many more apps for note-taking on a tablet than a laptop.
Tablets have better average battery-life compared to a PC, as well as less-bulky chargers.
A smaller screen means less space to work on.
A tablet's in-built keyboard will never come close to a real laptop's keyboard. For people used to typing a lot, this might cause some problems.
While PCs have built in keyboards, ports, and trackpads, tablet accessories must be bought separately. This increases the cost, as a student will most likely need a keyboard or a stylus.
