I purchased the ASUS Chromebook (12 inch version) back at the end of August for the sole purpose of using it to take notes in college but it has actually proved to serve a variety of purposes throughout the past 3 months of use.

Tablets are an awesome and different way to surf the web, video chat a friend, or watch a movie but are they really necessary? The first tablet was introduced by Microsoft and was called simply the tablet pc. No one really seemed to dig the idea since it was quite ugly. The first tablet that really got famous was apples iPad. From then on more and more came to the table.
So what is an iPad? Basically just a smaller laptop but a bigger smartphone. If you think about it that’s really all it is. Would i still get one? Hell yeah! Heres why…
A tablet is something you can use laying in bed, relaxing on the couch, or basically anywhere else. Sometimes you ‘ feel like using your laptop but a phone just wont do. That’s were the tablet comes in.
There are many makes, models, and styles of tablets. They have android based ones like the nexus 7 or the galaxy tab. Theres of course apples iPad and new iPad mini (seems like a slightly too big phone to me.) And then there’s the largely popular kindle fire and kindle hd by amazon. The kindles are mostly popular among readers due to the fact they are based on e-reading. Out of all those my favorite is the nexus 7 because I love the android market.
So in conclusion are they necessary? No, not at all but neither are half the other electronics. on the market but that doesn’t matter, it’s the fun and the luxury of having a new piece of technology. There a luxury not a necessary, well at least to normal people because there a necessity to geeks like me. So yes I highly recommend them!
