Are tablet PCs and iPad useful for official work for a long duration?

Date: 22 Jun 2014    Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Laptops & Tablets   

As per my experience with Tab PC and iPad usage, I don't think they are the best gadget to use for official or online work except some or few WiFi or Net connectivity related works to perform with shorter duration. Rest, they are just an entertainment device to play some game or take snaps or video only.

Do you think that Tab PC and iPad are majorly useful for official work? Expert and users of Tab PC and iPad can tell their opinion.

Tablet PC are good for entertainment activities like music, video, games and internet. Apart from any of these activities you can't do anything with a tablet or iPad. However we spend most of our time with these entertainment activities which makes tablet a user friendly device. One of the reason we can't do our office activity is the absence of keyboard. It is hard to write faster without absence of keyboard. So Microsoft introduced Surface 3 tablet with keyboard facility. Major problem in touch devices is you don't have shortcut for cut, copy and paste. Multi-tasking is also not convenient in tablet as we do in laptop. We should hold tablet in our hand and it won't be convenient for long duration. Tablet won't support external devices like external hard disk, mouse, joy stick, CD drive, additional RAM, ethernet port etc. Only if entire facility available in a laptop is transferred to tablet we can use it for office purpose.

According to me PC can come in handy while doing official work. If you have to work for long hours then iPad can give a lot of stress to your eyes. So, its better to use PC while working for long hours as it doesn't give any high stress to eyes as compared to iPad and tablets.
