We’ve all dreamed about them. Ever since the iPad was released the market just overflowed with desire for a particular product. I can only be talking about one thing: the tablet. A tablet computer would be a great thing to own, what with every model’s slim sizes and small weight, but let’s just face it. A tablet isn’t a necessity, it’s an indulgence. Most of the time there is no real need to own one. Ever wonder if you ever actually need a tablet, or even what tablet to buy? Here are two things to ask yourself before whipping out your wallet.
1) What purpose would this tablet serve me?
This is an important question to ask yourself if you want to justify buying a tablet for a purpose instead of just buying one for a luxury. Will your tablet of choice serve you a true purpose, or will or it sit uselessly on your nightstand, subject to your two years old’s playfulness? (If you have no purpose, buying it for a fun plaything is never out of the question.)
2) Can you actually afford such a thing?
This is entirely the most important aspect of your purchase, as it will determine what tablet you can buy and the usefulness/efficiency of the tablet. It makes perfect sense that a person would not want to spend $499 on an iPad 2, but many believe that this tablet is the best to own because of the app selection for the device. The price of the Kindle Fire is a little more relenting at $199, but it’s not exactly a top of the line tablet.
Do you have a reason for buying a tablet? Do you even know what tablet you would buy and, if so, what tablet? Let us know in the comments.
