Travel With a Computer

Many people who travel overseas for extended lengths of time now choose to take with them a computer. However, choosing the right one to take is not as easy as it might at first seem.

There are broadly three different categories of portable computer and all are suitable for varying things. Therefore, it is advisable to choose wisely between buying a laptop, a notebook or a tablet computer.

A tablet computer is good for consuming information, but not so great at creating it. To this end, if one should want to watch films, listen to music and store all their photos then a tablet is ideal. Sending and receiving email and using Facebook is also possible, but the device is not really suited for situations where a lot of typing is required.

Notebook, or netbook computers are kind of the middle ground. They are small and lightweight, can do all the things that a tablet can with the added bonus that typing on the keyboard is easier. That said, for prolonged work, the keyboard may seem a bit small after a while, and the processor may not be very powerful.

A laptop is more suitable for those people who must work as they travel. With good processors they are capable of running different programs at once and the keyboard is great to type on. The drawback is, of course, the weight of the machine and its size.
