A tablet by definition is a mobile computer that encases a display, circuitry, and battery in a single unit. That definition hardly describes what millions of people have come to rely on for entertainment, education, and more. Tablets are part of our world and while I do think we need to make sure we step away from technology now and then, tablets are extremely beneficial in a variety of uses. The best part is that good quality tablets are incredibly affordable these days, you can snag a Windows based tablet for $99! With amazing deals like those, you can grab a tablet for each of your kids. No more sibling rivalry! Plus you can purchase your own to read or catch up on a show. These tablets feature OneDrive which allows for connecting to the cloud from any device.
