iPads & Tablet PC's on Finance
Things to Consider
As more and more tablets are being introduced into the market, it is becoming ever so difficult to know the right type of tablet to buy. The following is a quick guide to selecting the perfect tablet.
1. Operating system
Tablets run on a variety of operating systems. There are those that run on the iOS platform. This is indeed a popular operating system on which both iPad and iPhones run. Android is another operating system that tablets run on. Already, android is being used on a majority of phones. HP and Blackberry are yet other operating systems for tablets. While some tablets tend to run on Windows 7, this OS is not designed to run on tablets. However, Windows 8 is more tablet-friendly.
2. Screen size
When choosing the right table for you, one thing that must be considered is the screen size. Choose a screen size that is comfortable with you. A tablet with a bigger screen is likely to be bigger. Therefore, if you want something more portable, you need to ensure that you do not go for a tablet with a bigger screen. At 9.7 inches, the screen size of iPad 2 and that of original iPad are quite a popular size. However, newer android 3.0 tablets come with bigger screen sizes of 10.1 inches. But there are also some smaller options. Tablets with 7-inch screens are also quite popular. Examples of tablets with 7 inches are Blackberry Playbook and Dell Streak 7.
All tablets use the ARM processor technology. This is the type of processor that nearly all phones run on. With many companies coming up with their own versions of ARM processors in terms of chip design, a lot of these processors are actually duo-core, just like majority of PC processors.
One of the most important attributes of a tablet is the camera. Front-facing camera enables you to make video calls while the normal cameras found on the back of tablets are for taking pictures or recording videos. Check to see the size of camera lens in terms of megapixels. The higher the better.
5. Storage capacity
A tablet, just like a computer, is also a powerful entertainment tool. It needs to have enough storage capacity to accommodate movies, songs and other stuffs. An ideal storage space can start at 16 gigabytes although it can go up to 64 gigabytes.
So, when buying a tablet, a lot of things need to be taken into consideration. For instance, how long can the battery take you when fully charged? How many apps can the tablet accommodate? These are important things to consider.
Purchasing a tablet, such as an ipad, on finance can have a number of benefits, including the chance to spread the cost of the item over a prolonged period of time.
