Tablets are as much essential as laptops and desktop PCs of a student's digital checklist. Newegg is proud to offer a big selection of the latest tablet computers and the smoothest online shopping experience.
The biggest factor that distinguishes tablets from other types of computers is their size. The best tablet computers can easily fit into backpacks and purses without feeling bulky. Generally, tablets in the 7-inch and 8-inch range are the most portable, and while less portable, the best 10-inch tablets’ larger screens make them good for watching videos, reading documents, and editing photos and videos. Increasingly, the performance of the best tablets belies their compact size, thanks to responsive high-resolution touchscreens and fast graphics processors. Many of the tablets are optimized for multimedia content, such as games or videos, to take full advantage of the apps in their dedicated online stores.
Tablets emerged into the mainstream in 2010 with the launch of the original iPad, and the market has since become flooded with dozens of these portable devices. Buyers today face a confusing landscape with tablet computer choices segmented by operating system (Apple iOS, Android and Windows) and size.
