Why Tablets Will Never Replace Desktops?

Tablets have been available among us for many years, but some still people still resist having one. They don’t understand why others bother to have them. However, many people are more convinced about the usability of tablets and this trend will continue to rise over the upcoming years. Desktop lovers may not get the point and they may be more indifferent about latest advances in mobile device industry. They strongly oppose any statements that desktops will die out eventually.

For this people, laptops could be the savior; but the most powerful computing devices available for consumers are still desktops. Desktops could look clumsy and more ideal for office and home uses; but they are still much loved for people who want to have excellent performance, upgradeability, repairability and value. Today’s desktop has improved much. Latest operating systems have changed and hardware used by them also has better value. Desktop monitors have also grown slimmer and now, we rarely see desktops with old CRT monitors.

Sales of desktops may have slumped somewhat, but desktops will forever remain the workhorses of high performance computing for consumers. While professionals with light computing requirements, such as writers could easily type with tablets and Bluetooth keyboards; others such as coders and website designers will need the true computing performance of desktops. Desktops are also the main computing station that provides seamless integration with other devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.

Desktop owners are aware of the impracticality of their machines, especially compared to laptops and tablets. However, working with tablets could represent real annoyances. Trying to type a good-sized document with a tablet is an absurdity. The virtual keyboard has zero response to our fingertips and keys are quite miniscule. Anyone with even smaller finger girth could find it a pure challenge to type single words. It is true that we could carry Bluetooth keyboard with us, but simply ruins the portability value of our tablet. In this case, we may as well bringing laptops with us.

Average tablets when fully charged could last for an entire day with moderate usages and a few hours when used for playing high-intensity 3D games or watching high resolution Full HD movies. One the other hand, although desktop users will remain at one location for a long time, they don’t need to worry about running out of electricity. Tablet users with drained devices are usually more restless and when they are still working on something, it is likely for them to run a mad dash to the nearby power outlet.

One thing that we see about tablet owners is that they do many things on the device that can be achieved with smartphones. There could be slight productivity boost they get with tablets; because tablets are still mostly enlarged smartphones, but without voice call and texting capability. They spend hundreds of dollars on a larger device with apps that can also be installed on smartphones. In this case, tablet users should really determine whether it is really necessary for them to purchase a tablet.
